There is a war going on in the politics of public education. The fact that there are politics involved with educating children, our most valuable resource is disturbing enough – but wait until you see David Sirota’s examination of the real evil behind conservative attempts to destroy public education from the inside.
Tea Party conservatives are doing incredible damage to children and the larger public education system as a whole. Their argument for “reform” is a lie on its face: School teachers who’ve dedicated their lives to educating children, care less about those children than the nice billionaire for-profit school barons who are financing the “reform” movement for one purpose: To PROFIT off of our children in the same way they’ve profited off of prisoners by privatizing the prison system. Generally speaking, with the exception of these evil businesspeople, the Tea Party-types getting elected to these school boards are anti-education, anti-science, ignorant buffoons who shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near young minds.
