Wake Up And Get An Education

SEE HERE  This is tragic really.  A lot of folks were laughing at this lady because she is functionally illiterate to a large degree.  How did she get that way if she was in school for twelve years unless the schools were perfectly fine with not doing their job?  The problems we have are made more serious by the failure of people to step up to the plate and swing for the bleachers.  Yeah I liked baseball when I was younger.  Here we have an example not of someone who is dumb but someone who has experienced a twin failure.  The failures are the failure of the home to motivate and the twin failure of the school to settle and not rock the boat.  We are producing millions of functional illiterates who actually went through school.  I'm sorry but there is plenty of blame to go around.

Oh and by the way, generally speaking the student is responsible for the education they receive.  If you're personally motivated you can overcome almost any obstacles.  Question that do you?  Read the life of Frederick Douglass and then come tell me about it. Oh and that's a picture of Douglass who tricked little white boys into teaching him how to read and he never looked back.
