    “There is a campaign under way to essentially destroy the public education system along with every aspect of human life and attitudes and thought that involve social solidarity. It’s being done in all sorts of ways. One is simply by underfunding. So, if you can make the public schools really rotten, people will look for an alternative. Any service that’s going to be privatized, the first thing you do is make it malfunction so people can say, “We want to get rid of it. It’s not running. Let’s give it to Lockheed.” — Noam Chomsky, The Progressive Magazine, September 1999, p.37

Educational Reform or Ineptitude?

That the American educational system is broken is one fact that everyone, it seems, is in agreement with. “Despite decades of reform attempts and billions of dollars of investment, the American education system badly needs improvement.” Only 34 percent of eighth graders are proficient in mathematics, 29 percent in science and 33 percent in reading. Compared to other countries, American students score near the bottom—21st out of 30 in science and even worse in mathematics—25th. Only 70 percent of students graduate on time. Americans also give the nation’s public school system poor grades, with 70 percent grading the system as C, D or F.  Read More… 

Comment: The education system is being broken deliberately, for at least three reasons:

1. To damn down the nation and to eliminate the middle class. Primitive, uneducated people are easier to manipulate and easier to satisfy.

2. To privatise it in order to pocket public money assigned to run the education system.

3. To privatise it in order to gain control over the curriculum as means of indoctrination of our children with the corporate agenda and ideology.

The money, allegedly spent on improving the system, are in fact used to implement so called “reforms” that are designed to destroy it. Parents, wake up from your slumber! It’s time to act now! This is really happening. Tomorrow may be too late.
