I'll feel better if she abolished the dept and job.
I can't think of a more worthless agency (although there are many, many that come close!). I doubt that we will ever see it but closing those doors would sure warm my heart.
One of our regular bluegrass jams is hosted at a bistro where a lot of "educators" gather. They are emblematic of everything I hold in contempt - haughty, cold, imperious, hidebound - they look down their noses at us when all we're doing is playing music.
They feeeeeeeeeel that they know everything when they demonstrate that they really don't know sh!t. They are the true embodiment of the old adage about putting lipstick on a pig.
I got into an argument with them about abolishing the DOE. Two of them looked aghast at me and one of them actually said, "Do you really hate children that much?!"
I explained that the DOE adds nothing but bureaucracy and wouldn't it be better if the decision-making were done at the local level, not the far-flung indifferent authoritarians in DC? Their answers proved that they would prefer the dogmatic bureaucratic world - even to one where they aggregate more personal power.
