Why Our Education System is a Failure
Today Americans are as ignorant as ever. Americans have little understanding of our concept of government, and a shocking number can’t form a few simple sentences on paper to form a coherent paragraph.
Our Hispanic immigrants can’t read nor write in English or even their native Spanish as they proudly waive the flag of the nation they ran away from.
I have to put the blame on teachers and their Socialist controlled unions for the Conspiracy of Failure. Socialism can only exist and survive with widespread deprivation, poverty and ignorance. An educated population threatens Socialism and creates an automatic conflict of interest for our educators that actually educate.
A simple question I can put out to everyone. is what percentage of teachers you have had that was excited and inspirational about teaching you? The answer is always the same, less than ten percent.
To be a teacher you must win the attention of students. Teachers must be inspired about what they teach or they are unable to inspire anyone. Instead of inspiring they simply watch the classroom time pass. Oh what a relief it is to hear that dismissal bell.
Teachers are entertainers by default, after all they have a stage and these days have great multimedia tools to inspire kids to learn not just in class but from every possible source. Teachers must show the children just how and why the information they are getting will improve their life.
I never had a single teacher that would dare explain how knowledge and productivity can generate wealth. Kids today all want cell phones, Ipods, Computers, flashy cars, clothes and cameras. Where can they learn how to obtain these necessities?
Teachers refuse to tell our children that education is the path to major wealth. Instead teachers give our children the message that wealth is somehow evil in true Socialist tradition.
There must be some kind of a political correctness thing not to dare suggest to the kids in poor areas that their parents are parasites on society and big losers. This is precisely what the kids need to understand and that there is a very simple way out of poverty in America through education.
Teachers must be forced to entertain, captivate and inspire. Teachers have to be excited about the subject they teach and do so with visible energy. Teaching the wonders of science or telling the life and death importance of history should bring thrills to any classroom. Instead union teachers drone on at a snail’s pace sending the kids off to daydreams totally unrelated to what their class is about.
Unfortunately teachers are never taught the theatrical skills needed to do their jobs. Teaching is indeed a privilege.
I became a law enforcement/ Security firearms instructor nearly two decades ago. On weekends I taught thousands of people required classes they needed to obtain concealed weapons permits.
I taught safety, marksmanship, simple defensive tactics and conflict avoidance. I taught them what they needed to know about the law and liability of the justifiable use of deadly force.
The idea was so my students could safely keep loaded guns in their homes or on their persons for defensive purposes. Most importantly to make sure that the students could defend themselves reasonably and avoid mistakes that can get them killed or sent to prison.
I used lots of visual aids, video, to do this. Playing a few police, 911 telephone recordings of some well-known local very violent events always captivated my students. They all understood the importance and value of understanding what I was teaching as a result. All of my students graduated with an “A” even on the complicated legal issues.
If I can teach jaded adults about criminal law, why can’t math and English teachers instruct kids? The three R’s are the building blocks to wealth, productivity and the American dream.
I cannot help but to believe there has been a conspiracy to keep America poor and ignorant.
