The Case Against Public Education

Daren Jonescu at American Thinker makes the case well. I’d only add that eventually people are going to have to wake up to the sad reality that public school teachers aren’t saints, but instead, have been complicit in the disaster.

If public education is allowed to survive, all efforts to resuscitate the inert husk of modern civilization will fail. It is time to unravel the most wasteful and destructive entitlement program of all. Cancer cells do not divide into healthy cells. A corrupted, power-intoxicated political class will not willingly raise a freedom-loving, self-reliant populace. Governments must no longer be allowed to pre-determine their nations’ fates, by mass producing the populace that serves their interests.


It is time for all those who have struggled in frustration to change “the system” — and that includes the brave minority of public school teachers who have chosen to stand quixotically against the progressive avalanche — to band together with other advocates of freedom and virtue in taking a bolder step: acknowledge that the system itself is rigged to fail, or, at its worst, to “succeed” on evil terms. Acknowledge that, implausible as it may sound to most people at this early stage, if you really want to raise a generation of rational, decent adults prepared to shrug off the chains that today’s majority has accepted in exchange for its “fair share” of the state’s ill-gotten booty, you must emancipate the next generation of young adults from progressivism’s universal indoctrination program.
