The War on Summer Break

Peter Orszag, a Bankster and a former Senior Obamaite, is once again pleading to hold children captive in government schools for longer periods of time, otherwise they just get fatter and dumber. He calls this “seasonal learning loss and weight gain.” Here’s another piece from Orszag making the case for keeping kids in the hoosegow until the early evening hours. Thanks to Travis Holte for the link.

    As a former public school teacher, I have witnessed the addiction the educational establishment has for “the latest thing”. Any two-bit academic or government busy-body who comes up with the new magic bullet to solve our educational woes is embraced and the mandates go forth that all teachers, schools, and administrators shall comply. After all, we have to show the people that we’re “doing something”.

    Put aside the fact that the federal gov’t. should have nothing to do with education, why we continue to heed any of these gurus is beyond me. I guess it’s much easier to blame outside factors for my kid’s problems than for me to take responsibility myself.

    The kids are getting dumber and dumber THANKS TO government education. Look how our nation has fallen in education levels internationally THANKS TO government education. Evidently 14th in the world isn’t low enough for the feds. Now this little Nazi jerk wants total brainwashing compliance so he and his can produce literal imbeciles and prepare our children for a life of hedonism and career futility.

    I remember fondly each and every three-month-long summer vacation I enjoyed as a child in the 1960s, yet I recollect very little of the nine-month inter-summer periods I spent in Kinderstalag. Afterward, I managed to graduate from college with a perfect grade point average, and I’m 6 feet tall and weigh 147 pounds. Whatever detriments there may have been to being freed from school during the summers of my youth were far outweighed by the benefits.
