The once-vaunted American public education system has turned into a raging dumpster fire, churning out legions of semi-literate emotional cripples whose confidence in their beliefs is inversely proportional to their level of factual knowledge and capacity for logic and reason.
This is not for a lack of “investment,” as politicians like to call their profligate spending of taxpayer money. When the federal Department of Education was formed in 1979, it had a budget of $2.9 billion. In the Barack Obama years, that skyrocketed to nearly $80 billion.
Yet despite the U.S. outpacing nearly every country in the world on per-student education spending, we have very little to show for it. In an annual ranking of OECD countries, the United States ranked 40th in math, 24th in reading and, and 25th in science
So in what category do American students score #1 in the world? That would be in “self-esteem.” In other words, they are mediocre academically, but they are very confident in their mediocrity.
The blame lies not with the students of today who can barely read or write, have almost no knowledge of American history and government, are not well-versed in classical literature, and run to their safe spaces to cower in fear when faced with the specter of opposing viewpoints.
No, that blame would lie with their parents and grandparents, who allowed the education system — the one that produced the engineers and physicists who put a man on the moon using pencil and paper and calculators — to become rotten.
Schools today are more concerned about enforcing radical leftist orthodoxy and the homosexual agenda, including forcing high-school girls to undress in front of boys who claim to be girls, than in teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic,
The public school system, now a de facto arm of the Democrat Party, is very protective of the monopoly it holds over what is fed into the minds of our children.
Far too many schools spend their time teaching a gender-bending, anti-white, anti-Christian worldview that is hostile to America’s founding principles.
In the meantime, our children graduate high school unprepared for life in the real world, with nearly 60% of them requiring remedial English or math classes before entering college.
And so it is no wonder the Left loathes President Donald Trump’s education secretary, Betsy DeVos, a long-time advocate for school choice. DeVos has spent the last two years seeking to unravel Obama’s disastrous education policies.
Democrats are also toiling to block Trump’s judicial nominees, knowing the courts are where they must defend the cultural changes they have achieved in the schools.
And unable to even name the three branches of government, it is certain that American students will never grasp the tyranny of a judiciary that creates law by fiat while ignoring the Constitution.
America’s schools are the battleground on which the fate of America’s experiment in self-government will be decided.
