Lol, people treat me like some marxist era communist when i start soapboxing about how shitty our educational system is

Teachers wages too low?

They chose that career

No money for schoolbooks?

Well why not?

Raise taxes?

Fuck no

Buy your kids school supplies?

But those are expensive, the school can pay for that

You know your kids teacher uses their own money for things like pencils and paper for students because the school won’t/cant?

gasp how terrible

That’s kind of where i usually stop because they are so lost in their own bullshit that they will genuinely argue that the teachers should have been doctors and lawyers or sports stars or business execs if they wanted to make a liveable living… They’ll justify until their blue in the face that the system works as intended, when kids are basically at a doggie day care and not an educational system.

If you continue to disincentivize potential future educators and instead encourage them to go into accounting, then who teaches the children the way of the world?

The accountants? The instagram socialites? Propagandists? The streets? Maybe nobody?

We’re fucked, too many people wouldn’t share their last slice of bread with their dying brother unless there was something in it for them.

  1. Profit above all is how you could sum up America. Greed is good. Becoming rich is the American dream, and the government is run and controlled by corporate interests. You know this and you do nothing or are unwilling to do what it would take. I understand why, they designed it that way. Despite hating it, the cost of doing what it would take to change it is too high for most people.

    As long as the majority have food, shelter and would lose it otherwise, they’ll bitch and moan, maybe even protest, but not risk prison or destitution.
