Your description is beautiful.

This little girl is so articulate and 100% correct. She wrote it beautifully from her perspective. But, I hope that she will see that while minority students are most heavily targeted by the tactic of depriving kids of knowledge in order to create an obedient work-force, other kids are also being targeted, though maybe to a lesser degree. The Master is the corporate world. They need worker bees of all kinds. Some, they want in the factories, some, they want doing the accounting. They want NONE of them to create a competitor that will put them out of business. They want NONE of them to question their corruption or hold them accountable. The Federal Government, a Princeton study recently confirmed, is no longer a democracy. It is a plutocracy. It is controlled, not by the voter, but by powerful and wealthy corporate interests, who drive policy and bring consequences to bear when those policies don't suit them. Who do you think is really in control of the Department of Education? In the end, ALL children in public school are being conditioned to be good citizens of a plutocracy, where the only goal is to serve the system. Most parents don't recognize it, because they have been through the entire system, taught to be good worker bees, and don't know there is another way. I hope this young lady is one of the few who doesn't just obey. Maybe one day, she'll be the woman who turns the system on its head. More power to her!
