Despite the utter claptrap and propaganda put forth by the powerful piggies in the Nazional Edukation Association and the teacher’s unions, the scoundrels employed in public education are not the virtuous, saintly characters you have been told about. Cheating of various forms, and wildly imaginative in its feckless ingenuity, is being unearthed in public school districts all over the nation. And you’re being forced to fund these ridiculous capers through your tax dollars, and to pay their scheming architect a lifelong pension. You’re a patsy and an easy mark for putting up with it.
You know how dirty the gangsters and racketeers in public miseducation are. Recently and locally, a true bunch of gangsters running the city school system in Fairfield, Ohio were probed by none other than the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In a series of stories you can read here, which I brought you last year, members of the Fairfield City Schools Board of Miseducation accepted bribe money from a local garage that was the recipient of a lucrative contract with the district. The plan was for the bus garage company to buy the election, and in return, the owner, a Tom Burer, would keep the contract with the district.
Unfortunately for the criminals at the plaque-clogged heart of this caper, the truth got out. It was discovered that Tom Burer had bribed Sharon Ko. Burer was convicted and sent to jail. Ko had to resign from the board under pain of prosecution and likely imprisonment herself. But guess what?
The dishonest thugs on the Fairfield School Board came through anyway, and gave Burer’s Garage the bus contract again. Wow. Just wow. What a message to send to the students of the district.
The dishonesty in public miseducation goes far beyond the awarding of lucrative contracts however. A massive cheating scandal has recently been uncovered in the Lockland City School district here locally in Ohio. It seems the criminals running Lockland schools wanted to perform better during standardized testing times, as so to obtain a higher rating on its academic state report card. So Lockland cooked the books.
They segregated 36 low performing students and essentially transferred them out of the district for the duration of the testing period. So, on paper, the students had withdrawn. Thusly, their test scores would not hurt Lockland’s overall performance or academic rating.
Pretty slick, huh? It wasn’t slick enough to avoid being detected by state auditors, however. Maybe all the effort and brainpower it took for the teachers and district administrators to devise this plan could have been allocated towards actually teaching the kids something.
Other attendance rigging cheating scandals have been discovered elsewhere in Ohio too. Public school districts in Toledo and Columbus have also been found to be cheating in essentially the same manner that Lockland was. What a shame we have these antics taking place on our dime. You’re paying these fat bastard school employees – these lazy, no good, slobs in Florsheim shoes – to devise these stunts. I’d rather have my money wasted by a hobo seeking to purchase himself a bottle of Wild Irish Rose.
So just keep voting “yes!” on those school tax levies, you idiot, you. Allow yourself to keep getting browbeaten into silence by the thugs in the teacher’s unions, and the imbecile soccer moms who do anything they say. Keep doing that, you coward, and you’ll keep paying fat slobs in public miseducation to sit on their keysters to dream up new ways of cheating. Then you get to pay for 100% of their healthcare upon retirement at age 45, and a swanky pension too, you silly pillock.
Unfortunately, cheating is not something unique to just Ohio. These unionized oinkers in public schools nationwide are running scams to make themselves look better. If a hedge fund manager was pulling stunts like some of these teachers were, and cooking the books, he’d end up in a federal prison.
Atlanta has been absolutely rocked by a widespread cheating scandal in its school system that makes the egregious antics of dirty rotten teachers in Ohio look like amateur hour. Check out this special section by the Atlanta Journal Constitution. It has dozens of stories devoted to coverage of the shady antics of public educators.
There has been cheating by public schools in Baltimore. Washington, D.C. schools cheated. Philiadelphia schools cheated. The list actually goes on and on and on. So how long are you going to put up with this?
“But Uncle Andy! The standardized testing is what’s to blame here!”
I’m no huge fan of testing. But that doesn’t excuse this rash of cheating on the part of public schools. If the crooks running these schools worked as hard to educate children as they did to beat the system, we’d have a society of Einsteins.
Moreover, how else are we going to hold public schools and those who work in them accountable, if not with testing? Show me a better vehicle for accountability and measuring success, and I will gladly consider it. Burdened taxpayers have invested far too much in public schools with dubious track records for us to simply stand back and expect these corrupt, inefficient, organizations to police themselves.
As we have seen with these cheating scandals, these unionized criminals running the public schools cannot be trusted to behave in a professional, ethical, proper manner. Oversight is needed. Accountability is needed.
Every other profession on Earth holds its employees accountable for standards of service and production. So why do the NEA and all the teacher’s unions shriek like stuck pigs whenever it is suggested they be held to account for their failure to serve our children? We pay your salaries, you NEA thugs. You work for us, the taxpayers. Not the other way around.
