Now this extends to all aspects of education in all topic areas and grade levels through college.
Why is that? When we permit arrogance to dominate curriculum decisions and start implanting one set of opinions or another, we have undercut not only the educational value for the children but our own country’s economic well being. All so one group get their values pushed and promoted while the facts are damned.
Yes, that is wording it strongly. But when our schools devolve into teaching paradoxes instead of what is based on proven facts, observational data supported by experimental data tested by the rigors of time and the validation process in not only science but all of the social sciences and history, we have surrendered reason to emotion.
We have surrendered logic and the capacity of generations to think logically and in a grander scope for the sake of influence of a set doctrine. Now we must reap what has been sown and the country must pay the price if it can survive the price tag.
Between a Federal Reserve system having orchestrated a series of blunders leading to a devalued dollar, restrictions in supply and demand, and extensive stupidity for over 30 years covering many different administrations and combinations of Democrat or Republican controlled House, Senate and White House, we are seeing the failure of sound educational practices come to bear. I concur with the statements of Professor Walter Williams regarding Congressional Problem Creation.
But in this culture of not taking responsibility for ones actions and dodging accountability, the fingers will be pointed elsewhere. The fault of those driving a substandard education at all levels gives rise to the product put forth to serve in office. When logic and reason are suspended for the purposes of political or ideological gain, suffering on a large scale will ensue. Those who have initiated the process and propped up the deterioration are responsible for what will be their own decreased place in the world.
Now it has come back to hit the same education system and governmental bodies square on the jaw or a body blow to the pocketbook. Gas prices are starting to cripple the budgets of school districts, sheriff’s departments, cities, counties and states. Who is going to pay for this? The taxpayer is the normal answer. However, the taxpayers are also losing their homes or the values of the homes are plummeting. That directly leads to decreased property taxes which is where the schools, police and fire departments get their funding from exacerbating the budgetary impact of the gas price increases.
The more our education system focuses on teaching the irrational, the unproven, and the illogical dogmas whether they be of a humanistic or other value system, the more they slit their own financial throats down the line.
