The Woke War On Meritocracy

Half the children in the United States cannot read or do math at grade level and inner city kids are way below grade level.  This is the result of 30 or more years of failure in our public schools even though we spend more money on public education than any other country in the world.  The Woke Education Establishment refuses to accept responsibility for this failure and further will not focus on improving the quality of education and academic achievement in our country.  Instead rather than acknowledge the metrics that demonstrate the National Crisis we face because it is actually their report card of failure, their goal is to indoctrinate rather than educate. 

The woke Education Establishment is now pushing Critical Race Theory, which is Marxist, racist, revisionist fake history and the radical LGBTQIA agenda right down to kindergarten if allowed to get away with it.  And, since things like Great Schools Ratings, grades, standardized testing and National Scholarship Awards tell the story, the Woke Education Establishment simply wants to eliminate them because they claim metrics are "racist."  In fact, in Fairfax County Virginia, which has been the epicenter of parent's protests against woke indoctrination, the school district failed to give out National Scholarship Awards in time for students to include this recognition as part of their university applications.  The school district claimed they did not hand out the certificates because this recognition is contrary to their "social justice equity" goals.   Unbelievable!  

The reality is that there is a Woke War On Meritocracy.  Everything in our country that is good is now bad.  So working hard to achieve good grades, high test scores is somehow "racist" because not all kids can measure up to high standards.  We are admitting kids to universities in many instances not on the basis of their test scores and academic results; but on the basis of their skin color.  This is blatantly unfair and also does a disservice to people of color who should be held to the same standards as everybody else because with a great education they can meet those standards.  

Somehow success is frowned upon because there are many people who never achieve it.  The American Dream is alive and well for anybody who is willing to work hard and deal with delayed gratification along the way.  The American Dream happens for people of all colors, sexual orientations, etc. willing to work hard with Focus, Discipline and Passion to achieve success.  This formula for success is pretty simple.  

The Woke Education Establishment has given up on learning for half the kids in our country because it is easier to indoctrinate than educate and they do not want to be held accountable for their failure.  Their goal is to make these kids good left wing radicals that support Socialist Fascist (AKA Democrat) ideology.  This is why we must have School Choice in our country so that parents with limited means can get their kids into private schools to escape failing public schools.  And, we need more public charter schools not controlled by teacher unions that focus on education rather than indoctrination.  This Woke War on Meritocracy will destroy our country.   We must push back and demand excellence in our public schools.  We must hold those who work in the Woke Education Establishment to high standards are well.  Those who fail must be invited to find other jobs where they cannot harm children.  We must deal with the National Crisis we face in education.  The clock is ticking.  How many more generations will be lost.
