The Great Failure of Modern Educators

 This is the Mission Statement of the University of Alberta Education Faculty ....

The Faculty of Education is committed to the discovery and dissemination of knowledge about teaching and learning. We promote the view that to be a professional educator is to continue to question, to reflect, to seek knowledge, and to be open to change.

This is what the Dean of the faculty thinks it means ... Fern Snart ...

...  “To educate students beyond the superficial,” she writes, “we must engage them in transformational processes and deep thinking such that they understand the Western position of privilege that is often reflected in issues of diversity, power, and justice, and that they move to an internalization of responsibility related to this privilege.”

From a post at SDA and a column by  Margaret "Privileged" Wente:

Unfortunately, the people who educate the educators sound like the wacky wing of the NDP.

Prepare your children to resist the feminist/marxist/idiotarians of the world .... that alone will be worth far more than any diploma or degree from any of these indoctrination mills.

I've had plenty to say on this before ....

Too late. The public education system is loaded with these self-serving, idiotic beaurocrats, whose only goal is - not to see that our children get the best possible education in their most formative years- but to fill their bellies at the public trough while laughing in the faces of the taxpayers as they get away with it.

It's not the teachers that are the problem.

You could easily dump half the beaurocracy in EVERY school division, nobody would miss them and public education would be better for it.

What exists today is a pack of fat bastards who spend their days inventing new ways to justify their overpaying jobs.

But I digress...
