We Are Losing the Education Race!!!

Many countries such as China and India among many others are doing a much better job educating their children than are we with our budget disaster — even Cuba. Let the banks and corporations repay what they have stolen!!!

Thousands of our teachers are being fired. Classrooms are over jammed and even gyms are being used for several classes at once.

In the global economy that has replaced our military one, we are becoming the big time losers. Our life expectancy rates are a disgrace.

Greed is becoming an admired American value. And to hell with those who are suffering — who may be me next week with the loss of a job.

The U.S. is living back more than a century in its thinking — medicine, fair profits, public interests?

I, therefore, cringe when I hear that we are going to lose our teachers, too — old and young. What young college grad in his right mind would now chose teaching as a career. It used to be a favorite for those who cared about kids and others! No more.

Back to where I began, we are a fading nation — lost its way bogged down in ancient history somehow.

What do you think?

“A war is just if there is no alternative, and the resort to arms is legitimate if they represent your last hope.” (Livy cited by Machiavelli)
