At the Institute for Political Economy, Paul Craig Roberts decries the modern school system and its brainwashing of children and wasteful spending. He writes (abridged):
When I was a student, school principals and university administrations were very supportive of teachers. It was understood that once teachers could be accused by students, learning discipline would break down, and control would be lost over grading, standards, and course content.
This is what has happened.
A teacher’s life has changed from imparting information and challenging ideas to students into dodging accusations from leftists, feminists, blacks, homosexuals, and transgendered.
Today even use of a gender pronoun can be cause for termination.
Universities have become dysfunctional. The majority of the budget is eaten up by administrators.
Today education is a form of brainwashing and amounts to indoctrination against one’s history and culture.
Just as today teachers cannot teach without danger of career-ending accusations and athletes must accept implied insults in order to participate, telling the truth brings censure from those who control the narratives. In such a world Western civilization has been erased.
