What's Wrong With Education?

I certainly don't know. I've got a few ideas that I could expand upon but nobody really listens to much I have to say. Regardless of how hard I try, people seem to think I'm a stupid little monkey. I know it's because I'm relatively short and don't shave very often which gives me a monkey like appearance, especially when I squat and throw my feces. Still, it would be nice if someone gave me a little credit. I actually do know a little bit about some things and certain institutions have felt it was at least a fair deal to honor me with university degrees. But I know nobody cares what I have to say. Even if I wrote something incredibly insightful and answered all the questions that could lead to massive cultural reforms, people would ignore it and talk about how lame I am and how my ideas are worthless.

That being said I will supply a link to this book. It's called the Underground History of American Education. In all fairness, I haven't read it so I don't know if it's any good. Somehow, I think it might be though. It was written by a thirty year teaching veteran who was distinguished by the New York Teacher of the Year reward. I imagine that's pretty special because New York probably has a few teachers. Anyway, he quit after thirty years and started lecturing about the indoctrination of our youth that is disguised as school. Even if he's wrong it might make for interesting reading. It is available in entirety on the interwebnets so go to it all you thronging masses and read this shit. Then tell me if it's worth my time.


[crying] I'm Chuck and I'm so sad because no one listens to me. It's just because I'm an unshaven monkey. It has nothing to do with my corrosive personality. I swear. You should all know that I'm much smarter than all of you because I have college degrees. Lots of them. Read books for me.

That's pretty much you whole post Chuck. Original.

I promise I will read it when I have time. And give you a book report. When I have time. See you in about 18 months.

“We don’t need no education. We don’t need no thought control!”

I started hearing Pink Floyd when I read your post, Chuck, and then I burst out laughing when I read Adam’s.

I have degrees and nobody takes me seriously, either. Maybe it’s because they know I’ve been brainwashed.
