Kansas City Don’t Need None of That There Edumucation
What the fuck is happening to this country? How much further do we have to sink before we become the world’s number one basket case?
Kansas City is short on money (who isn’t?), so of course the first thing to go on the chopping block is Booklarnin’. Kansas City might close half of its public schools because of a $50 million budget shortfall.
There’s nothing else they could cut besides education? How about enforcement of hundreds of those victimless “crime” laws? How about a few overpaid government administrators and assistant-to-the-assistants?
A local 32-year-old father of two said that during his school days, he transferred from a top private school to the Kansas City public school system because of their high quality. Now he’s appalled at the deterioration and wonders where the money went:
“It's crazy. I just hope that with all the changes that they are planning on making, that the kids are the ones who are the most important and that hopefully they will get the resources and the education they need to be successful.”
If public schools (followed closely by libraries) go the way of the stagecoach and the hula hoop, there’s still a hopeful alternative: Hoem Skooling. And this way, you won’t have to clutter up your children’s minds with any of that there science and eevolooshin and such like.
If home schooling parents want to pretend the universe revolves around the Old Testament, they’re entitled. But just maybe, there could be a few home schooling texts available for families who know what century this is.
One of the most popular home schooling textbooks begins its biology chapter with:
“Those who do not believe that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God will find many points in this book puzzling. This book was not written for them.”
All righty then…
And speaking of dinosaurs — you probably saw this story a few days ago: Scientists are now certain that the dinosaurs were killed off by an asteroid.
Unfortunately, I think it missed a few of them.
