America’s elites are terrified that children may develop independent thoughts. Harvard professor Elizabeth Bartholet calls homeschooling a “threat to society.” Jon Rappoport discusses Bartholet and public schooling on his blog, NoMoreFakeNews.com, writing:
Daniel Greenfield, writing at Front Page Magazine, offers this gem:
“Elizabeth Bartholet, the director of Harvard Law’s Child Advocacy Program, described the ‘homeschooling phenomenon’ as a ‘threat’ to society, claiming that conservative parents ‘homeschool because they want to isolate their children from ideas and values central to our democracy’, ‘promote racial segregation and female subservience’, and ‘question science’.”
“Her paper called for a ‘presumptive ban on homeschooling, with the burden on parents to demonstrate justification for permission to homeschool.’ These views are not fringe.”
Of course, this elite Harvard titan, Bartholet, knows which ideas and values are central to our democracy; and the place to drill them into children’s heads is public school.
Which pretty much sums up what public schools are for.
She also has a complete grasp of science in all fields, and she can identify disruptive questions which would lead unsuspecting people down the wrong track.
Appoint her the head of Something Big immediately.
Like all of her super-educated colleagues, she manages to forget that the United States is a Republic, not a democracy. But a democracy is what she needs, because under that system the well-oiled systems of money determine which voices are heard and which are silenced.
The voices that are heard are called “the will of The People.” So says the press, which is basically a PR and marketing operation on behalf of Money. As a cover, the press pretends to be an advocate for the poor and the underserved.
Elizabeth Bartholet should be pumping gas and collecting tumbleweed at a station in Death Valley, where she can talk to herself and right all the wrongs of society.
It’s always this way with elites; they know what we need because we can’t know it. They labor to supply us with their values because ours are worthless.
