Quoting Theodore Roosevelt

“To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society”

~Theodore Roosevelt

This is kind of what I’ve been saying all over the place it seems. This is why I say — in general — that public, state schools suck so much. We are seeing right before our eyes, the education of menaces to society.

Can we deny it?

Can we point to a few schools and a handful of teachers who are exceptions to this rule? Sure. Does it mean that our state controlled, taxpayer funded, industrialized factory-model education system is doing a stellar job at educating a little over 50% of the millions of children force-fed through the system, and because of that, it is worth maintaining?

Hell no!

So what are you going to do about it? (I mean, besides writing pithy retorts on internet forums about how your teachers are great and the schools that your kids go to are top-notch and how people like me shouldn’t be so mean-spirited.)

What Would Teddy Do?

Maybe he’d tell you go yank your kids out of public school, teach them a little “morals clarification” in what it’s like to be a family and to work for your existence.

Maybe then, your head might clear and you will realize how our Government Schools have taken our children and trained them, not to be well educated, but rather trained them to be a menace to society.
