I prefer to post transcripts of videos whenever possible, because most of us can read and comprehend far faster from them than from sitting through a presentation. Unfortunately, in this case, there’s no transcript available: but I thought the subject, and the presenter’s insights, were so important that I wanted to blog about it anyway.
In this video, James Lindsay discusses the hidden dangers behind the “school choice” movement. It’s described as follows:
School choice is an important component not only of liberty and improving educational outcomes but also of defeating the Woke Marxist influence in our schools and upon our children. It isn’t so easy as making the money follow the child or the backpack however. School choice legislation has to be smart, and it has some challenges in need of clever solutions before we blunder ahead into a trap the Woke Marxists are setting for us. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, James Lindsay spends a few minutes breaking down the challenges and pitfalls of bad school choice policy by explaining how it will fail to solve the essential problem and might even walk our communities and our children into a Woke trap even worse than what we currently see in the public schools.
Having watched and listened to the video, I think it’s an important contribution to a debate that affects every family in America. I highly recommend that you take eleven minutes to watch it, and hear for yourself.
Food for thought, isn’t it? I find the same with most of the discussions at New Discourses, and I recommend you take a look at that Web site for yourself.
