I say, it’s high time we stopped tossing about cash on these little urchins. Give them the absolute minimum, show them how to be good little workers, and they’ll be faithful servants for as long as they’re needed. It’s hard to get good help these days. Several times daily, I tell the chauffeur to garage the limo, but he’s circling about the block trying to impress some floozie or other. Train them as children, say I, and they’ll do whatever requested of them. That Geoffrey Canada chap has the right stuff, and God bless American Express for giving him a forum.
Muffy and the poolboy are all for this, and seem to have created their own classroom in which they model the prescribed behavior. At least I hope that’s what they’re doing, as they’ve locked the door and are making the most remarkable grunting and shouting sounds. Spare the rod and spoil the child is what I say, and it’s jolly high time we brought back corporal punishment and dispensed with this mamby-pamby nonsense they’re given in those public schools. The sooner they close them the better.
Personally, I’ve had it up to here with all this gobbledygook about social justice and entitlement. Bill Gates, Joel Klein, and yes, the President of the United States have another vision. Let’s halt all this nonsense about blaming Wall Street for the economy, and the sooner we do that, the sooner we can lay all these lost dollars at the feet of the unionized teachers. The punters will eat it up.
Let’s get them to stop talking about, “Why can’t I have this or that?” and focus directly on “Why do teachers have this or that?” That way, they’ll be happy about the downfall of these socialized workers, and be happy with whatever trickles down on them. Finally, we have a Democrat in office who will help us, and what’s better than that?
With the money they don’t put in public schools, we can build our charter network to the point of replacing them completely. Teachers will be at-will employees who last a maximum of five years, we can pay ourselves whatever we want, and then we can start making some real money from this “education” our taxes have been funding all these years.
