William S. Burroughs said…..

“I don’t care if people hate my guts; I assume most of them do. The important question is whether they are in a position to do anything about it.”

 

I love this quote.

Many people have an irrational fear of talking heads.

Our current State Government in NY is overloaded with them, both at the legislative level, the Executive Branch and State Education Department.

The current education reform movement, which is aided and abetted by aforementioned talking heads and driven by corporate greed (Pearson Corporation, Rupert Murdoch, etc.) would have us believe they are going to take us to the promised land if we just follow them, albeit blindly.

I call bullshit. They’re testing and assessment reforms have not been tested or proven.

I will not follow blindly and be another lemming as many of my colleagues are.

After all, it’s not 1938, is it?

Until I get proof otherwise they can hate my guts.
