Education

July 28, 2016

 

Current education

Thinking cessation

Filled with manipulation

One sided regurgitation

Lying devastation

Mental saturation

 

The bare minimum to learn

Enough to work and earn

Memorization the churn

Knowledge not the yearn

No good place to turn

Evolution set to burn

 

Misinformation en masse

Why even go to class

Interactions so crass

Watch your back to save your ass

Consistency very morass

Lower the curve to pass

 

Teachers wages low truly

To manage the unruly

Or try to stop a bully

Treating everyone cruelly

No parent engaged fully

Everyone acting so coolly

 

Learning time could be fun

Figuring out how to sum

Know the kinetics of a run

Or the weight of a ton

Not wondering which one

Is carrying a gun

 

What’s the alternative

Without taking a sedative

Or is it all relative

The problem is so massive

It’s a darn I do give

Figure better ways to live

 

When I went to school

Felt like such a tool

Shut up, obey the rule

Stop acting like a fool

Don’t shine as a jewel

Be a good government mule

 

Books say, Lincoln was shot

Leaving out,  it was a plot

Conspiracy theorist I’m not

Pertinent information forgot

Making it too simple alot

Part of reality left to rot

 

Just know what you are told

Be ignorant and yet so bold

Like slaves bought and sold

Don’t break out of the mold

Think how you are controlled

500 channels, you’ve enrolled

 

 

Inspired in part by George Carlin

“Dumb Americans”

“Life is worth losing”

“Not too bright, folks. Not too fucking bright. But if you talk to one of them about this, if you isolate one of them, you sit ’em down rationally, you talk to ’em about the low IQ’s and the dumb behavior and the bad decisions; right away they start talking about education.

That’s the big answer to everything: Education. They say, ‘We need more money for education. We need more books, more teachers, more classrooms, more schools.

We need more testing for the kids!’ You say to ’em, ‘Well, you know, we’ve tried all that and the kids still can’t pass the tests’.

They say, ‘Aw, don’t you worry about that, we’re gonna lower the passing grades!’ And that’s what they do in a lot of these schools now, they lower the passing grades so more kids can pass.

More kids pass, the school looks good, everybody’s happy; the IQ of the country slips another two or three points and pretty soon, all you’ll need to get into college is a fucking pencil! ‘Gotta pencil? Get the fuck in there, it’s physics!’

Then everyone wonders why 17 other countries graduate more scientists than we do.

Education!

They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago. 

They don’t want that! You know what they want? They want Obedient Workers – Obedient Workers. 

People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork but just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it.
