    When did we stop educating people?, when did we decide the state should tell people what to think instead of how to think on various important issues that affect us every day, and instead teach them, their is only way one way of thinking, and that those who want more rights, are racist, homophobic, and stupid, rather then looking in the mirror, they might actually see that in themselves

    I thought it was Rush that told people what to think.

    Not all people. Mostly right wingers. They don't seem to know any better.

    The next year, the Rockefeller Education Board—which funded the creation of numerous public schools—issued a statement which read in part:

    In our dreams…people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands. The present educational conventions [intellectual and character education] fade from our minds, and unhampered by tradition we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive folk. We shall not try to make these people or any of their children into philosophers or men of learning or men of science. We have not to raise up from among them authors, educators, poets or men of letters. We shall not search for embryo great artists, painters, musicians, nor lawyers, doctors, preachers, politicians, statesmen, of whom we have ample supply. The task we set before ourselves is very simple…we will organize children…and teach them to do in a perfect way the things their fathers and mothers are doing in an imperfect way.

    During the golden age of progressives

    From your article: The Educational System Was Designed to Keep Us Uneducated and Docile

    That's what the right wing wants. Injecting the occult into the classroom. Magical creation taught as an alternative to science. No wonder right wingers fall so far behind in education.

    When liberals took over the school systems. Everyone wins, everyone is equal, some schools don't give out F's, Latinos who don't speak English are deported they get extra attention, teachers aren't free to expel kids from their class, schools aren't free to kick disruptive kids out, school pass poor score kids in order to not have to deal with the kids and we pussify our kids.

    I was playing Candy-land with my daughter and son. My daughter got all the way to the end and she said "Daddy I won" then my son said "We both one." I cringed and said "No, you lost! #^&^ won! There are winners and loser, you do your best, play fair, be a good sport, but always try to win!"

    It's crap!
