A declaration on education
On this 4th of July it is appropriate to quote our Declaration of Independence in response to those that want to undermine our public schools.
“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes;”
To paraphrase from the Declaration,
On this Independence Day it’s time to declare that our public education system will no longer be subjected to a long train of abuses and usurpations, under a design to reduce it under absolute Despotism, it is our right, it is our duty, to throw off such forces, and to provide new Guards for future security of our schools!
