Democrat Mayor Richard Daley of Chicago, which has the third largest school district in the nation, has announced that he wants to extend the school week to 6 days, all year long, meaning no more summer vacations. Daley?s model is Communist China, where he vacationed, which has 250 days of brainwashing ? excuse me ? schooling per year. It seems that the mayor admires the Chinese government and wants to model his administration just like it.
Daley somehow thinks that six days of mediocrity would be much better than five days of mediocrity. And he wants that to extend from 180 days per year to the Communists? 250. It seems that the plan is to force kids to become good and obedient little robot socialists.
Just imagine, publik skool not only for 6 days a week, but for longer hours each day, and then for 12 months a year.
Sobering, isn?t it? Education for exactly what?
All year in publik skool to become a better publik fool? Why does Daley and his cronies want to extend the misery longer?
Chicago Teachers Union officials said they support year-round schooling, but say teachers would have to be paid more. It would have to be written into their union contracts, and for more money, of course. Sen. Martin Sandoval (D-Cicero) will propose legislation next year to possibly raise the minimum required days of school attendance in Illinois after careful consideration and learned debate.
More money; for the democrat unions, suppliers and especially for the political SICKO?s (Socialists In Charge of?Killing Opportunity).
Political SICKO?s, as do all socialists, live at the expense of the tax-paying sheople, increasing their ?fair share? by impoverishing not only the children but their whole families as taxes are raised yet again. All will be called good, when it is evil. Those good citizens who voice dissent will be called evil by the SICKO?s.
The irony of this situation is that most publik skool teachers are themselves graduates of the same system. They can?t spell much better than their students. So the students will grow up dumb and dumber and not able to get a decent-paying job since Congress sold them down the river. They simply won?t be able to pay the increased taxes with which Daley, Sandoval and the other SICKO?s try to empower themselves. In fact, all will be taught the socialist diversity of false entitlement and expect to be given free jobs, free health care and free rein to do everything but work. SICKO?s invariably commit slow-motion suicide by their own stupidity.
Albert Einstein once said that, ?The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.? Einstein was an eyewitness to German SICKO?s who ruined their nation, as well.
?If we want to compete against China and India, we have to change,” Daley said.
Associated Press writers in their puff-pieces about SICKO politicians rarely mention how home-schooled children easily outstrip 98% of public school kids in math, the arts and sciences and even in spelling, making them frequent winners in national spelling bees. Never said is how private and charter schools often use less money and produce graduates with far better skills. Yet mayor Daley, SICKO that he is, wants to imprison children even longer in the useless tedium of the SICKO-run public obedience schools in Chicago.
People who like Dracula movies recognize that SICKO?s are political vampires sucking the people dry ? of their money, their parental control, their dignity and their hope. SICKO?s prove this by shrinking in horror from crosses or any other public display of spirituality. Most likely the SICKO vampires will use a good portion of the pending ?education? tax increases to continue fuelling their bloodlust to exterminate the good because it burns their evil.
The people of Chicago should make a deal. They?ll allow their kids to go to publik skool 6 days a week and the democrat unions get an increase in pay, only if Daley, Sandoval and all of the State congress attend their jobs only one day a week and get paid for only one day a week. That would put a stake through their SICKO hearts and would be well worth the sacrifice.
