Jasper, We are on the same page here--mostly.
I do not agree that it is ALL the politicians fault. Usually, as happened in our state, the bill itself was passed by the legislature but they allowed the so-called "experts" come in and write it. These are people with an agenda and it isn't an agenda designed for the good of ALL.
And I have done a lot of research on this and find that the same "experts" go from state to state and write the curriculum. Some of it very destructive.
And I know from working with these people at various events that they do tend to be ultra liberal for the most part. Whether they are all or not--I don't know but that is the highest percentage. They are also people who live in some kind of fantasy world that they "revise" history and "revise" physics and nature---and how people actually learn--to suit themselves as to how they would "like' it to be. They are some of the most "out of it' people I have ever been around.
There is one nutcase named David Hornbeck who was big in our KERA and in the programs of many states that came after Ky's plan.
He wrote a book about the school system checking out the parent's homes to see if they are "fit" to have children BEFORE they have children.
He had many other things he suggested as well as the kids only sleeping at home but the rest of their day is "decided" by the school system. And what careers they went into is decided by the school system.
This book didn't come out til afterwards --so the state legislature was hoodwinked by him.
He suggested that only sleeping and perhaps breakfast would be up the parent --after than it was the school system.
If that isn't a communist school system where the child was taken away from the parent--what is?
And by making it part of the LAW that teachers could not criticize KERA--they prevented teachers like me who researched this guy from speaking out publicly.
