As much as I love and respect the work of Ken Robinson, I’m hitting a breaking point. If America is tired of it’s underfunded education system failing, then they need to recognize the following:
You either value education, or you don’t.
It’s that simple.
You either care enough to demand that state and federal governments stop slashing your funding for education (paid for by your tax dollars) instead of giving themselves pay raises and fighting for tax loopholes and breaks for millionaires and billionaires, or you don’t.
You either care enough to demand that we pay teachers a decent wage (since those vile liberal Communist Socialists also spend all day with your children, mentoring, tutoring, sometimes parenting, but generally taking care of them above and beyond what you will ever comprehend), or you don’t.
You either believe that repeated high-stakes standardized testing forces your children to learn how to take a test rather than think critically (because if their multiple test scores are too low the district will lose funding and the teacher may lose their job), or you don’t.
It’s simple. It really, really is.
