And then there’s good ol’ America
This actually makes me so angry. The truth is right here and people see it and brush it aside. We really could make things better. But no, America apparently wants to suck forever.
You know, America, if we spent some money investing in education instead of making sure the ultra-rich were even more ultra-rich, we could *actually* be the exceptional nation that we pretend to be.
In my neck of the woods I’ve seen a bumper sticker that says IT TAKES A SCHOOL TO BANKRUPT A VILLAGE. A better bumper sticker would say IT TAKES AN UNEDUCATED GENERATION TO BANKRUPT A NATION. We could be doing amazing things with education in America if only we had the will.
