I hate to use excessively inflammatory rhetoric, but what else can one do to describe the assault on rationality that is our education system? That our education system is a failure because it has become dominated by teachers and administrators who are doing their best to disassociate themselves from our society should be obvious from the dominance of Political Correctness in higher education.
Christina Hoff Summer's fascinating book, The War Against Boys, alone, should cause anyone with children great fury with modern education ideology, but together with Martin Gross' Conspiracy of Ignorance, the depths to which its sunk is staggering. However, do not think that the education system cannot go lower. Here is a story of how "Zero Tolerance" politics are being used as cover for enforcing the social engineering that the Lillipudian educators are intent upon. 10 year old children being suspended from school for "pointing their fingers like guns during a game of army-and-aliens on the playground."
Is it possible for school administrators to more clearly cry out to be fired?
