Government Failures

Monday, September 23, 2019

Sadly, this morning's Roy Exum: "Teachers Bolt At Tyner" is in fact hard news.

But unvarnished truth perhaps is best left in "Opinion", as most people would prefer to not see the truth of what is happening to their children. It is after all, in my opinion, about as disgusting as watching the manufacture of "cottage cheese".

Let's look at truths here. If your child's teacher has been in education more than say, five years, there is an excellent chance they love children. Time has a way of weeding things out that way. Many senior teachers are fighting for students, against the government. There is also an equal  chance they also truly care about your child and children's future. 

But one has to ask: "What has gone wrong?"  Mr. Exum's Opinion piece actually lays it out.

The machine has failed. The machine does not have your child's back. The machine does not have the teachers' back. 

At which point i speak my mind: Comprehending the machine of government education is unseemly. Mr. Exum was on point. It is after all government at work. Consider government as a whole: Do you enjoy the lines? How's the potholes on your way to work? How well are the roads striped on your roads? Can you see those stripes on a wet road at night? What response do you get from your letters to government representatives? Ever tried to get city code, insurance companies and state law to agree on anything? Ever been disgusted by a "90 days in jail" criminal sentence for a repeat offender? They are all products of government.

Government is about control. Government is not about efficiency. Government is not about equitable outcomes. 

So what do you get when government controls education? 

Roy Exum explained it this morning. But most everyone will agree it is not education. What I have to ask is, why is any loving parent, trusting the most prized portion of their life to government indoctrination?

Have We Been Saved?

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead. On Friday evening she passed out of this life and into eternity. She has now seen God face to face.

Unlike earth, rebellion to his laws is given no day in court. And all her ideas of what ... (click for more)
