"Why quote opinions, where you can source facts" ~NLR Jr.
"The forecast for the American school system took root around the turn of the century - when racism was the way of life. In 1903, John D. Rockefeller founded the General Education Board (Rev. Fredrick T Gates served as President), which provided major funding - around $250 million ($250,000,000 of 1903 dollars would be worth: $6.8 billion back in in 2016) for schools across the country and was specifically active in promoting the State-controlled public school movement." ~Steps to Eliminate Racism
Family names like The Rockefellers, Gates, Carnegies, Vanderbilts along with other financial elite used their "philanthropic" organizations to mold society by funding and pushing compulsory state schooling for the masses. With the formation of the Department of Education (DOE) in 1979, it takes little less than "common sense" to piece together why in today's schools, penmanship is being neglected and more money is pumped into prisons & entertainment than education and family values.
