NCLB Outrages

NCLB: by the folks that brought you the war in Iraq.

As a Viet Nam Vet and School Psychologist, I keep seeing the parallels between the military industrial complex and the educational industrial complex...same model..same methods. The lie of the Gulf Of Tonkin/Haiphong Harbor "incident" to "increase our efforts" in Viet Nam to the WMD lie to attack Iraq. Beyond the horror, the ones to really profit from both ventures were the "private vendors."

Enter NCLB...similar to "leave no man behind in combat," it keeps us from asking questions like "Behind what?" or "Should I be here in the first place?"

58,600 American deaths...3 million Vietnamese deaths....How many "soul deaths" caused by the educational industrial complex?
