JFK is dead. Illinois Democrats are killing public education, active and retired teacher pensions, and more.

I wept when John F. Kennedy was killed.
This is NOT an homage to a sainted icon. It is a comparison of what the general public and the Democratic Party supported as education then versus what the party actually does today.

President Kennedy devoted much of his public life to the service of public education – respect for children, parents, teachers and public schools. Political opposition to his efforts and even his own all too human flaws did not stop him in his pursuit of true public education. He did the right things to support quality education for all. You could probably make a list of your own supporting this with what you experienced, witnessed or studied about during his time as President.

JFK and his childrenJohn F. Kennedy said:
*A child miseducated is a child lost.
*Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a private hope and dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength for our nation.
*For in the final analysis, our most basic common link, is that we all inhabit this small planet, we all breathe the same air, we all cherish our children’s futures, and we are all mortal.

Today, I weep for children, parents and the active & retired teachers who are being neglected and abused by Democrats and Republicans at a state and national level.

644217_469586819776408_1231327938_n2013 – The bluest of blue states with a super-majority of Democrats is killing public education by closing public schools while funding for-profit charters with tax money, hurting active and retired teachers by robbing them of their pensions, inflicting state mandated high stakes testing that abuses children with its uselessness and daily pressures, and cuts education funding while giving away hundreds of millions of dollars as incentives, grants, tax breaks, etc. to multinational mega-corporations who contribute to re-election campaigns.

QuinnVallas2Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn (D) named Paul Vallas as his running mate for the next gubernatorial election. Vallas has destroyed and is destroying the school systems of Chile, Chicago, Louisiana, Philadelphia, Bridgeport (Connecticut) and Haiti. Read HERE.

Quinn himself has repeatedly stated that he was “put on God’s Earth” to destroy the constitutionally protected teacher pensions in Illinois. The same constitution he took an oath to protect. The Democratic Speaker of the House for 30 years, Mike Madigan, has also vowed to do that and to support a charter for-profit board that can overrule elected public school boards in order to funnel more money to themselves and their financial backers. The number of Republican Tea Party approved and ALEC written legislative processes repeated by Illinois legislators is mind boggling. Read more HERE and HERE.

Rahm paysRahm Emanuel, Democratic Mayor of Chicago and past White House Chief of Staff for President Obama is so corrupt and anti-public education that volumes are being written about him. He even marches children across killing fields by closing neighborhood schools and using the money to build a sports arena for a private Catholic university. Read HERE.

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has done more to damage public education and fair testing than any Republican Tea Party elected official in power today.

Duncan aDuncan’s latest insult to “white suburban moms” and their children is merely the latest in his streak of abusive words and intentions. Arne’s financial backers (Rupert Murdoch, Eli Broad, Bill Gates, the Walton Family, the Koch Brothers, Jeb Bush, etc.) speak through him. Read HERE and HERE.

 

 

I wept when John F. Kennedy was killed.

Now, I weep for children, parents and the active & retired teachers who are being neglected and abused by Democrats and Republicans at a state and national level.

Today is, indeed, a sad day.

  1. Thank you, Ken, for a very pointed and powerful post. Truly, we have entered the age of the Demoncrats.

      Demoncrats. Democrapublicans. The Democratic Vee Party. (V – Vallas. E – Education. E – Exterminator.) The sellouts in both parties are truly destroyers of the American way of life.
