I bet there were some administrators who would have loved to cut that microphone.
I remember viewing an 19th century 8th grade finals exam that made todays tests seem trivial.
What once was expected, demanded and administered to achieve education has melted away to expose nothing more than a buerocratic system of failure.
I too applaud this womans speech and that she used this final platform to point out the agenda of those dictating curiculum at all levels of schooling
here in the states.
Interestingly, even back when I was "schooled", a friend who had studied abroad had decided to drop out because what we were being taught was years
behind what was presented in other countries who take education more seriously.
The "no kids left behind" senario is a concept that guides us not to achieve our potential, but to adhere to governmental providership and the
disassembly of the family unit and to promote division.
The same is occuring at our borders where the "war against terror" has been abandoned leading us into a culture that focuses on dislectic values
rather than our unity.
It is evident when I walk in shoes made in Korea, where clothes made in Maylasia, surround myself with trinkets from China, drive vehicles made in
Japan and Europe that are powered with fuel purchased from Saudi Arabia, talk on my cell phone from Hong Kong or singapore, and speak with utility
provider service representatives from India.
No wonder the unemployment rate is climbing with so few jobs available. As jobs and our industries have been outsourced, we can agree that we are
deceived on many fronts.
You Go Girl!
