Sorry about the bogus link to Gatto's site.
Here's the real link:
Here's to real reform of the educational system, and not just re-arranging the deck chairs in Slavelandia.
The odds on real reform aren't good, but surely are possible if enough people wake up from the deliberate trance they've been schooled in.
Here we go again with with another assault on the minds of children in the name of education.
And as usual it's diversionary tactics to avoid the real problems in public education.
Unless the goal is to produce productive worker bees that can give the correct answer to specified questions.
If you've done any investigation into the history of the US public education system, you know that the Rockefeller Foundation's General Education Board was the prime driver in its creation.
Rockefeller’s foundation was about systematizing us.
In 1913, the Sixty-Second Congress created a commission to investigate the role of the Carnegie and Rockefeller foundations, and of other corporate families. After a year of testimony it concluded:
"The domination of men in whose hands the final control of a large part of American industry rests, is not limited to their employees, but is being rapidly extended to control the education and social services of the nation."
And so it still goes.
The real crisis, or shall we say, travesty in education goes far deeper than the lack of enough funding or the right testing.
The whole system has been intentionally designed to produce a compliant, pliable laboring class to supply the corporations with workers to generate wealth for the business and ruling classes.
The primary reason for the current deterioration of the system is directly related to the shifting of corporate production to other more compliant, more pliable, lower paid wage slaves in countries with social contracts similar to those desired by the 'compassionate' conservatives in this country.
Therefore, the corporations no longer have the need they originally did for legions of wage slaves in the US and funding for 'education' is gradually drying up.
The increasing debt and joblessness of today's college graduates is just another result of this current reality.
It's about time that the masses snapped out of the 'we just don't have enough money' trance and took a look at the real issues.
Folks, we're running out of time here.
If you're interested in more history and solutions to the real problems with public education take a look at John Taylor Gatto's website.
Gatto climaxed his teaching career as New York State Teacher of the Year after being named New York City Teacher of the Year on three occasions. He quit teaching on the OP ED page of the Wall Street Journal in 1991 while still New York State Teacher of the Year, claiming that he was no longer willing to hurt children.
A quote from Gatto:
'The new purpose of schooling—to serve business and government—could only be achieved efficiently by isolating children from the real world, with adults who themselves were isolated from the real world, and everyone in the confinement isolated from one another.
Only then could the necessary training in boredom and bewilderment begin. Such training is necessary to produce dependable consumers and dependent citizens who would always look for a teacher to tell them what to do in later life, even if that teacher was an ad man or television anchor.'
What say you folks do an article on the Un-Affordable Care Act or the Obama(Doesn't)Care Act?
This thing is a scam from top to bottom and deserves some hard-hitting journalism.
So how about it?
There's plenty of facts out there and a lot of skeptical people out there as well.
A friend who is an technical operator for Micron several years ago, had their entire fab fired. On their final paycheck Micron had a business card for a temp agency, 3/4's of them went there and found out that Micron had sent their files over and was willing to rehire every one from the fab, some even got a small pay raise. Unfortunately they lost they health insurance, 401k, stock options, and bonuses, and Micron saved money by only having to pay salaries not benefits. Local Greed is wonderful!
This is yet another sign of the times.
Temp agencies are right there along side the payday loan shops as fellow bottom feeders, parasitizing those on hard times, making their times even worse.
And companies like Bacardi are not unusual in their own parasitic use of workers.
In the current economy many employers are taking increasing advantage of even their full time employees.
The goal more and more seems to be to push the envelope on how much abuse employees will take.
It just goes to prove that without some sort of government regulation and legal consequences it isn't long before many companies will morph the work environment back to the slave like state of early industrialization.
We're clearly headed that way when you look at all the companies that have moved their factories to China, India and other third world countries, to take advantage of low wage , abused workers with zero rights.
Free market capitalism is a wonderful thing to behold isn't it?
As long as you're at the top of the heap of abusers and parasites.
Greed is Good and don't forget it!
When you look at the number of deluded people in the population, this small percentage is easily predictable.
"Even though we used technology to try to enhance the candour of respondents, we still see responses that are unrealistic," she said.
Ah technology, the be all and end all of legitamized science.
How about spending research dollars to find out something that's not so obvious?
Delusion is rampant in the culture.
To make that clear: Just ask people if they believe there's an economic recovery occurring.
fruit loop protesters
The folks running these rackets are the bottom feeders of the parasitic financial industry.
These payday, auto-title and installment loan traps have been spreading throughout the U.S. like a cancer, praying on the increasing number of poor in the Land of the Free (Enterprise).
The growth of this racket is just one more sign of the actual depressed economy, despite the fantasies pumped out by the bank/corporate controlled Main Scam Media.
Another sign that feudalism is returning with a vengeance to Slavelandia.
Greed is Good and don't forget it!
"the American public deserved a chance to see these issues determined by open courts"
Open Courts? He's got to be kidding.
Has Snowden really been paying attention?
The controllers have their claws into the Judicial system, just as they do every other system of control.
The Un-Patriot-ic Act virtually eliminated the 4th along with the 1st.
Judge, this isn't about trying to find terrorists.
It's about terrorizing the public.
The name of the game is control.
It looks like this judge needs to be reminded who he actually works for and it ain't the citizens of Slavelandia.
that is very nice to keep our A/C keep fresh for the nest year. and it is very cool programme.appliance repair services
And if that's true it will mean the Patriot Act (which sliced and diced the 4th Amendment) will be unconstitutional as well.
Finally a step in the right direction to protecting civil liberties! For too long, we’ve been allowing the coming of an age where the civil liberties our forefathers fought so hard for are being eroded by the day. Freedom of Press, Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Assembly are mere ghostly images of their original intent. We’ve woken up to an Orwellian Society of Fear where anyone is at the mercy of being labeled a terrorist for standing up for rights we took for granted just over a decade ago.

What a moron! You have to point out also the brightest side of the dam. Only exaggerating and guessing can't help the societies and their environment. Just writing for the sake of your sponsors satisfaction will not help the two neighboring countries either.
Here is a short doc about Public Access and TVCTV.
Conturds Unite! Punish the poor til they puke & die! Ignore the Pope! Vote Repulsican!
Greenie Weenie Libtards unite! Protest the Mega-Loads!

If you want to know why the station is in the state it is in -- ask TERRY CHRISTNOT-MEANS. She ran that place into the ground and sunk it with her INEPTITUDE for business, management and public servitude. Pretty much can be said for 90% of the Board / Exe-Board.
