The next Chapter:
Slowly, but surely, the wheels are turning and the American people are learning about the state of their National Education System. The “end-game” being played out has been evident to this observer for quite some time (since 1993). What has eluded me are the actual tactics that have been employed. Now, even those tactics are going to light.
Foe years, I simply shook my head, and wondered what had happened to these poor, unfortunate students. It finally dawned on me that there was something sinister going on behind the educational “curtain”.

I am not going to get embroiled with quoting statistics. The numbers have already been published, and, by this time, are public knowledge. What I will get embroiled in is calling out those people we currently name as philanthropists to the Nation’s education structure. Watch out for “for-profit” benefactors like Bill Gates, Michael Bloomberg, Michelle Rhee, Arne Duncan, Jeffrey Imelt, Jaime Diamond, et alia. These are the folks who seem to be spending a lot of time and money “reforming” our education system. Don’t you be fooled for one second. They are all interested in just how many of your tax dollars they can place in their bank accounts. Take a look very closely at who’s plowing their vast interests into dumbing down (aka standardizing) our National curricula. That wouldn’t be our captains of industry, or the 1%, or the owners of our Nation production, or the money lenders, now would it be?
