DONALD TRUMP- THE REAL COST OF IGNORANCE

To what extent is the popularity of Donald Trump linked to generations of Americans being purposefully undereducated in what remains a de facto segregated and inherently inferior public school system. Has this public non-education system been designed to assure that the vast majority of this country's population never reaches their intellectual potential, where they might actually have the ability to challenge those in power? Does the candidacy of a Donald Trump count on the fact that those in power will continue to delude themselves with the notion that two plus two must equal four, even if it is clearly no longer the case for the now uneducated majority of our population that chooses to deny it and support Trump.

COULD DONALD TRUMP BE THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS?

There's an old adage that says, "If you put a frog in boiling water it will jump out. But if you put the frog in water and slowly raise the temperature around it, it will boil to death." Given that we do not have the luxury of a parliamentary democracy, which most often requires a coalition between different political parties in order to govern. And given that we do not have the "None of the above" option on our ballots, it is seeming more and more likiely that we will be left with only being able to choose between the lesser of two evils.

ETHNIC CLEANSING OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN EMPLOYEES AT BERKELEY UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT

In reading this blog, if you have thought that the war on teachers and public education was something just isolated to LAUSD, you would be sorely mistaken. In writing this blog over the years I have been contacted over the years with greater frequency by high seniority and expensive teachers from all over the country who are being targeted and removed by school administrators doing the bidding of the Broad, Gates, Walton and other foundations hell bent on privatizing public education for profit and the further dumbing of America. After attacks against senior teachers in New York City, Buffalo, D.C., Chicago, Florida and elsewhere, the latest case in point has taken place in traditionally liberal Berkeley where the President Mansour Id-Deen of the Berkeley NAACP has finally had enough of these outrageous practices. In his letter to the Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD) about its concerted attack on teachers and classified staff of color being systematically attacked and removed from their careers by the new house negroes and hispanics running the BUSD into the ground, he pulls no punches in calling them out for their indefensible behavior. Click on the following link and read Berkeley NAACP President Mansour Id-Deen's 18 point attack on the BUSD's illegal behavior. Feel free to make comments and share this post with other educators around the country being savaged in the same manner: NAACP 5-10-16.pdf
