public schools do not put our national security at risk

free, open and equitable public schools establish our national security and our freedom as an equal people of inalienable rights.

This present manual is nothing less than a sales pitch from people with a profit to make from restricting these hard earned rights and values. This is Dick Cheney on war, out looking for a profit.

The people who put this book together include the head of a charter school system eager for further public profit for an unworkable and inequitable charter school system, which excludes far more than it educates. We read here as well from people who profit from the ubiquitous and continual criminal testing which now invades our schools like a cancer.

In fact the only valid and readable sections of this book lie in the dissenting opinions in the end, which support our present and past system of public education when freely and equitably managed, not when curtailed for private and personal profit as this book urges.

Shame once more on Condoleeza and company.

For instance, see the section written by Linda Darling-Hammond in which she dissects and destroys the false claims of the charter school industry.

See also the excellent analysis from Harvard's Stephen Walt who carefully pierces the ridiculous bubaboo that our public education somehow poses some national security threat to the USA. Quite the opposite. When properly implemented our public education system guarantees the well informed public required by our democracy, a critical and informed populace feared by those who would control us for their own personal profit and gain, the ones who truly threaten our national security as a free people.
