September 17, 2009: Astounded by the ongoing stupidity of the education system in America -- mountains of fatuous fallacies moronically held in place as gospel, and perpetuated through a bureaucratic business-minded approach to teaching that's blindly supported by a moronic public bred fat and stupid on sound-bite thinking -- I thought I might take a turn at spewing some of my more vibrant insights into pedagogical practice and the like.
But then I thought, Why bother?! No one cares. I wrote an excellent syndicated column -- "The Education Consumer" -- for two years, and all that came of it in the end were some pleasant emails from a few impotent fans, and some bitter raised eyebrows from a few disgruntled education hacks hiding behind their administrative masks.
Also, I feel my Blah-ugh! is about making you laugh, or at least smile, so why tire your mind with all that's wrong here in the 3rd Dimension. It's not as much fun, anyway.
So screw the education system and its ongoing insanity. If enough parents feel good about turning their kids into parodies from a Pink Floyd song, that's their business. I'll keep my focus on The Brady Bunch, rodent mating habits, and this new (old) great picture of me I just added ...
Next time (or perhaps not): Why homework, content focus, standardized testing, and superintendents are all stupid wastes of time.
