That Perfect Example Of The Department Of Education At Its Finest!

A few weeks ago, as a part of my Carter retrospective, I wrote about the creation of the Department of Education. Part of my assertion was the complete failure that this Department has turned out to be. Our national ranking for our students on the world stage has dropped steadily and substantially since this cabinet level bureaucracy was created. The costs per student spent in terms of real dollars have increased as the quality of the product supplied has declined. Our top spending school districts in this country are, not by any accidental coincidence, also our worst. How bad has the situation in our public schools gotten? Have a listen to the youtube clip below. Bear in mind, this teacher is the source for learning for a class that is covering Social Studies, a subject which should include our Constitution and the First Amendment among other topics.

There has been much hand wringing over the fact that this is a shameful example of indoctrination being substituted for actual learning, and those complaints are spot on. I don’t wish to diminish that argument, although I feel that it is somewhat secondary, and if not secondary, then at least it shares importance with something else of equal concern. This teacher is incompetent. When I say incompetent, what I mean is that she is a complete disaster, and should have in no way, shape, or form, been permitted to be introduced to a room full of anyone learning anything, as a teacher. The parents of this school district should be outraged that their tax dollars, which they are undoubtedly asked during every single election through a new bond issue to increase, are used to pay this woman a salary to instruct their children on anything more basic that how to tie their shoes. If it were my child in this school, I would be angry if she were allowed to be monitoring the lunch room.

Take a good listen to the taped recording above if you can stand it again. This woman is stupid, and that does not begin to cover the situation. Her grasp on the English language can at best be described as tenuous. She somehow feels as though her teaching certificate has given her authority to affect an arrest for people who, “disrespect,” the President. The entire concept of our political leaders being common folk who temporarily serve as our representatives seems so thoroughly lost, that she draws a clear distinction between our two contenders for this year’s election. Not only in terms of the job that they currently hold, but in terms as to what we mere citizens are allowed to even think about them. Her student has to remind her, the supposed expert on the very subject discussed, that our Constitution contains something called the First Amendment, which follows here.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of
religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging
the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right
of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the
Government for a redress of grievances.

Listening to this teacher, I couldn’t help but wonder, how did she escape her own school experience without being labeled as a special education student herself. As it is, I would be willing to bet that she not only has somehow managed to obtain the proper teaching credentials necessary to be certified a teacher in her state, but that she managed to be conferred with a Masters Degree. Which begs the question, where on Earth did she attend college, and why on Earth are there no standards there? That she seems to feel that teaching Social Studies is all about mass indoctrination of our youth to the Marxist point of view, fear not. She seems, at least from the complete lack of control of her class room that she is no more competent at that than she is with her grasp of the English language or her grasp of her subject matter.

How long has this woman been teaching? What is the NEA’s role or her Union’s role in keeping her in that position? How many other incompetent teachers are being forced upon the good people of North Carolina? This is the true legacy of the Department of Education. The sad fact is that this situation is not an isolated case of some illiterate moron slipping through the cracks to accidentally appear in front of a class room full of eager sponges ready to absorb the poison that springs forth from her Marxist view of the world. This woman is the rule and not the exception. Her suspension was with pay, and will undoubtedly be forgotten when the next school year begins.

Get ready also for new rules banning any type of recording devices at all public schools when classes reconvene in September. It’s not that they are afraid that you’ll find out that there is massive indoctrination going on. They are afraid that you’ll figure out the quality of education your unionized public employees provide for the taxes you pay, and then vote to defeat every single bond issue the school boards ever ask for in the future.

As an afterthought, here is the response from the school board.

The Rowan-Salisbury School System expects all students and employees to be respectful in the school environment and for all teachers to maintain their professionalism in the classroom. This incident should serve as an education for all teachers to stop and reflect on their interaction with students. Due to personnel and student confidentiality, we cannot discuss the matter publicly.

Nothing about the fact that the teacher has not a single clue as to the material being taught, nor the language she is expected to teach that material in.

    Meh, she has been suspended and publicly humiliated, hopefully that humiliation will end with her being fired as well.

    I doubt if this is unique. I bet this scene is replayed over and over again throughout many other classes and school systems. It is played out in corporate America too.

    Imagine all the other children suffering through teachers like this one.

    @ 3 citizen_q: Well that is true. She is what I would call an affirmative action baby. She never felt the need to be qualified. Some people use affirmative action as an open door to improvement. They probably would have succeeded anyway. Others use it as a way to be a couch potatoe. Human nature. So affirmative action is a negative effect in society and essentially harms the black person more than anyone else.

    A mind is a terrible thing to waste. hint Obama

    I have almost zero faith in public education…my kids went to the same system I did…upper middle class bedroom community…I was appalled at the neglect of the student in favor of the union…we made it, but me and mom put a lot of attention on those kids…I would NEVER rely on the govt to school my children…I was very possessive back then

    it never ends with this guy

    Barack Obama accused of risking national security over Osama bin Laden film
    President Barack Obama has been accused of risking America’s national security for political gain by giving Hollywood filmmakers access to secret material on the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

    Documents released under freedom of information laws show that Mr Obama’s defence department and CIA enthusiastically assisted Kathryn Bigelow, the Oscar-winning director, for her forthcoming film on the raid.

    Mr Obama’s administration even made available “a planner, operator and commander of SEAL Team Six”, the elite Navy squad that killed bin Laden in May last year. The identities of Navy SEALS are a closely-kept secret.

    The filmmakers were taken to a classified facility, whose name had to be redacted in the released documents, and were allowed to tour the CIA vaults, containing vast amounts of secret information. They were also shown the CIA’s mock-up of bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

    At the time, Ms Bigelow’s film, titled Zero Dark Thirty, was due to be released in October, later prompting accusations that it was timed to boost Mr Obama’s prospects for re-election the following month.

    Congressman Peter King of New York, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said on Wednesday that the emails told a “damning story of extremely close, unprecedented, and potentially dangerous collaboration” between top Obama officials, the filmmakers and a Left-wing lobbying firm.

    Fox is doing it. Sean Hannity had the 3 hour tape of Rev. Wright’s interview with Edward Klein and he also spoke to Edward Klein about Jarrett’s influence on Barack and Michelle Obama.

    That article in the Daily Caller is lifted word for word from the book, The Amateur, by Edward Klein.

    The 2011 discretionary budget for the Department of Education was $69billion. Here’s what we got. Sloth, ineptitude, corruption, bigger bureaucracy and more left wing indoctrination. The left is using our own tax dollars to dumb down our school children. There are 2 DOE’s that should be abolished… Energy and Education. Total ripoff of the U.S. taxpayer. They both produce exactly squat at the cost of tens of billions.
