“The Declaration of Independence”
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of Reformers requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. (Not really, but let’s pretend that that is indeed true in this case)
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all schools are created equal, that they are endowed by their communities with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are proper resources, dedicated teachers (for more than two years, at least), librarians and the pursuit of art, music and recess.–That to secure these rights, school boards are instituted among communities, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed (Not billionaires like El Broad and Bill Gates and nitwits like Campbell Brown), –That whenever any Rhee-form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it (“it” being the Department of Education) and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect true education — or, at the every least to “opt out”.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations (Common Core, standardized testing, VAMs, SGPs, school closings, NCLB, RTTT, Vergara, charters, for profit colleges, student loan sharking, TFA ) and a long list of engineers (Arne Duncan, Bill Gates, David Coleman, Jason Zimba, John king, Michelle Rhee, kevin Johnson, Eva Moskowitz, Raj Chetty, Eric Hanushek, John Deasy, Wendy Kopp [this comment box is not big enough to hold all the names] ) pursuing invariably the same Objects (standardized testing, VAMming and firing of teachers , marketization and privatization of schools, data collection and sale, sales of hardware and software) evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Gatespotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security — and future sanity.
