More reasons to abolish the Dept. of Education

Director Blue has a great piece detailing the efforts by the Dept. of Education.  Juicy part:

I think even progressives would agree that the Department of Education has been an abysmal failure. Hundreds of billions of dollars were spent in just the last few years alone with literally no measurable effect.

But the progressives claim they need more money.

I disagree. I recommend we excise the entire Department of Education and save tens of billions of dollars a year. Whatever they’re doing isn’t working and has never worked. And the United States survived just fine for over 200 years without an Education Department.

You may also be surprised that the Department of Education, in its official capacity, is a huge devotee of Saul Alinsky. Who is Alinsky?

He was best known as a community organizer and Marxist revolutionary who preached the violent overthrow of the United States government. He was, in many ways, the founding father of the current strain of radical Leftist Democrats. He advocated physical violence against those who opposed the left (“[we should break] the necks of Conservatives… [we] may resort to the sword”), he despised the U.S. Constitution and he sought to dismantle capitalism because of its inherent “unfairness”.

Some of their programs on their website:

• Alinsky Reconsidered: A Reluctant Community Theorist• TWO ANTI-POVERTY STRATEGIES–NEW CAREERS VS THE GUARANTEED ANNUAL INCOME – [Ed: this paper discusses two ways to undermine capitalism, one through a catastrophic “run” on the system (also known as Cloward-Piven); the other by a Statist reordering of the economy.]

This is not education.  You’re funding leftist indoctrination.  Abolish the Department of Education.  Yesterday.

Oh, yeah.  Leftists will claim that ‘you’re against education’ by advocating it’s abolishing.  Not true, it has done nothing to improve education.  The opposite, actually.
