Fox “Outnumbered” co-host Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery is distinguishing herself as one of the brightest shining morons on the network. In the wake of Oklahoma’s discussion to ban AP History and replace it with classes that teach religious sermons, the Ten Commandments, and several Ronald Reagan speeches, Montgomery went one step further and suggested that we replace the entire public school system.
Montgomery opened the segment by suggesting that “there really shouldn’t be any public schools, should there?” She went on to add that “I mean we should really go to a system where parents of every stripe have a choice, have a say in the kind of education their kids get because, when we have centralized, bureaucratic education doctrines and dogmas like this, that’s exactly what happens.”
The AP US History curriculum in question is designed by the College Board, a nonprofit organization that’s run by a Board of Trustees, who are elected by the members. They receive input from three national assemblies and six regional assemblies. This is the same group that gives us the SAT and PSAT/NMSQT. This is not a government agency, and to suggest otherwise is not only not right, it’s not even wrong.
It is, however, a level of propaganda that’s the norm for Fox. They are, after all, the memetic cancer that’s rotting this country inside-out.
Later, Andrea Tantaros went on off on a tear, proclaiming that the United States should just “abolish the Department of Education” and attacking “government bureaucracy, and Washington, D.C. dictating what kids should be taught.” According to her, children are “not even getting the basic education because they’re getting a bunch of this meaningless liberal crap, every day.”
I’m almost scared to learn what she considers “liberal crap.”
We do not have a centralized education board in this country. The federal government does not control the curriculum and contrary to popular belief, the Common Core was not an attempt to usurp the “state’s rights,” even though it really needed to be. In fact, the Feds played no role in creating or forcing states to adopt the Common Core.
But hey, keep right on lying, Fox.
