I got a fabulous education in the Public Schools of New York City. I graduated from my High School, Brooklyn Tech, in 1962 and it was one of the best in the world. None of my teachers belonged to a union.
I went to MIT that September and was able to save the amount of my tuition – $1,700 – during my summer job. None-the-less, when I got there the students were demonstrating and complaining that “Seventeen hundred is too damn much!”
Since then our ASS has been degraded by the Leftwing Establishment to the status of Political Indoctrination Camps. I realized this too late and now have a 37 year old Leftwing son. He’s highly schooled – at Ivy League Universities to the PhD level – but just doesn’t realize how brainwashed he is.
I’m not making that mistake with my 9 year old daughter. She goes to a private Montessori School where the teachers actually listen to me when I explain to them how I insist on a fair and balanced presentation of the issues.
Under LBJ, the Lefties got an idea that they could CHANGE the world through our Public Schools and Universities and they have been pressing that program ever since.
We don’t need a “No Child Left Behind” program. We need a “No Political Indoctrination” program in the ASS.
