The deliberate degradation of the education system was a ploy to tear away the American fabric, to diminish democracy, and to establish a hierarchy of political control.
Those who are implementing this strategy already recognize that to withhold education is equivalent to destroying opportunities.
Without opportunities, our nation will be further impoverished! Without opportunities our children will seek alternative means to establish themselves and grow. Without opportunities, we will resort to violence!
This type of manipulation is incongruous to the constitution under which our current form of government is established. In itself it is tyrannous and will inevitably spawn a revolution of epic proportions.
