    the defunding of certain schools. That is absurd. The CAUSE of defunding was racist attitudes in local school districts. That demends more public education, not job training by corporate lords.

    Once again, vacating Brown would NOT produce the results you want, and promoting ForProfit Schools only increases the venomous rhetoric against Public Schools by people who need education. To make a profit, they need an enemy, and the target, you, are guilty of falling for a Corporate Scheme to promote more venom and increase profits for... what benefit? Corporate conformity. Talk about drinking the kool-aid!

    •  Who said anything about vacating Brown... (0+ / 0-)

      you are totally missing the point and I know I'm not spending as much time with it as I should.  How you can say that racist attitudes are not the cause and ignore Brown is beyond me.  

      •  Racist attitudes Pre-date Brown (1+ / 0-)

        Brown was a remedy against racist attitudes. It was subject to a "go around" method of racism, called state by state defunding. But that doesn"t mean that Brown CAUSED racist attitudes or defunding. Brown, if ineffective as you say, which I dont agree with, is a VICTIM of racist attitudes. Not the CAUSE. Simple to me, but then again, what do I know? I have only been an educator for thirty years as a minority teacher for most of that time until I moved back to the Mainland.
