Schools = Prisons?
Hmmm....let's ponder for a moment the stark similarities between government schools and government penitentiaries:
Good behavior privileges.
Segregation for worst offenders/students.
The hole in one, detention/suspension in the other.
Both have *socialization* justifications!
Free shitty food.
Dangerous working conditions.
GEDs given in both.
Butt rapes in one...mind rapes in the other.
Both staffed by public sector unions - thugs who collude against *taxpayers*.
Both are arms of Big Government.
Read some of the comments on the news story. Let's just say that many of them ARE NOT very politically correct.
Someone I know, pretty well, recently told me in a debate over *education* that the schools here in NYC are not about traditional scholarship or any such thing. They exist merely, and justifiably, to keep *those people off the streets*.
Was it an unenlightened bigoted redneck?
Not by any stretch. It was a card-carrying, Northeastern, blueneck socialist!
I may as well have been conversing with eugenicist Margaret Sanger...
