The linked article is a quick sketch of how things should be done, as opposed to all the many ways things should not be done.
Ever notice how the public loves quiz shows? There seems to be in our DNA an absolute fascination with facts and knowledge. Everybody gets this, except the far-left social engineers in charge of our public schools. They are devoting their trillion dollar machine to social engineering and politically correct attitudes.
If you are one of these people, you know I'm telling the truth when I say that the people at the top don't care if children can read. What they care about is that children want to be global citizens, etc.
If people could choose to be ignorant and illiterate, maybe you could argue that they have that right, just as you might argue that people have the right to be alcoholics and drug addicts, and to carve their names on their arms with razor blades. The question before us is somewhat different. Do people have the right to consign OTHER people to a lifetime of ignorance and illiteracy???
Our Education Establishment seems to think that it has that right. This profoundly offends me. Ignorance and illiteracy are a kind of slavery. One would hope that the world might agree that slavery is not something you can impose on other people. When the Education Establishment uses methods known not to work, they are choosing ignorance and illiteracy for somebody else's kids.
