Big Education Distracts From The Real Problem

While "educators" chase "Dixie", Confederate statues, David Barton, and neo-Confederates around the internet - having panic attacks over their supposed influence on the American educational complex - we've got areas of the country where less than 10% of 8th grade students can even read. You'd think they'd have better things to do with their time. Sadly, many of these "concerned" educators seem to be more interested in distractions than they are actually educating. I suppose creating a boogie man to distract from the epic failure of your educational methods saves your own bacon - too bad for America's children.

Oh well, maybe their students can't read but at least, thank God Gaia, they won't be exposed to right-wing views of history and oppressive images.
