This is an excellent article today in Truth-Out Education Inc, the link is below.
My take on the article follows:
The quote in the article that kept sticking out for me was.. “This predominant storyline places the blame for this perceived crisis on public schools, parents, teachers and their unions, and has been very effectively sold to us through a narrative that has been repeated over and over again - by our politicians, the super rich and the corporate media”….
Why this sticks out? Perhaps because I heard it before?
“But the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success. : "War Propaganda", in volume 1, chapter 6 of Mein Kampf (1925), by Adolf Hitler.
What’s the story Dr. Turner well the story is…“This predominant storyline places the blame for this perceived crisis on public schools, parents, teachers and their unions, and has been very effectively sold to us through a narrative that has been repeated over and over again - by our politicians, the super rich and the corporate media.” Over a decade later and 1.2 trillion dollars federal tax dollars later with little or nothing to show for itself. Well the story goes on and on, and children and teachers are it's victims.
You have it parents and teachers, it’s all propaganda sold to us over, and over again by government officials, politicians, and cooperate education reformers. Propaganda that reduces our children, teachers, and their schools to test scores and profits. Steven Biko said: "The most potent weapon of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed."
The time is here to free our minds and our children from this corporate propaganda that demoralizes children, teachers, and places for sale on our local public schools.
Children are more than test scores,
