Politicized Education

The government is re-thinking education;
Education falls victim to Politics.
The student’s voice is muted.
The cost of free speech is incarceration.
Silence is more affordable;
The cost of silence is time wasted, worthless degrees and jobless futures.
Big brother is watching.
The teacher’s voice is muted.
Surveillance reigns-in the freedom to think and to be different.
Unrealistic standards discredit public education.
Standardized tests marginalize the poor and the indigenous.
The rich once again prevail.
