"A system which teaches facts and critical thinking - not how a kid 'feels' and which bathroom to use. We owe it to our kids to restore sanity - not to continue the insanity. For the children - VOTE NO!"

Referendum day. Not to be confused with Reformation Day in Lutheranism. This is the day school districts across the land parade out a bunch of cute kids, along with their union teachers, begging the voters not to forget the little ones. "Their future might lie in the balance! Vote YES! After all, it is for the children!" Gag me with a spoon.
Today is the day that the government schools try to make the voters forget their formula is not working well. In fact, as had been brought out many times before, where it is broken, it is really broken. And just like Humpty Dumpty, all the money in the world will not put this broken system back together again.
I like to refer to this day as the head and the heart day. The vote YES people, who want the voters to keep throwing good money after bad, want the public to put their minds in neutral. Just think with your hearts. After all, this is for the children. The vote NO people, bury us with statistics which reveal the truth. And what is the truth? More money DOES NOT yield better results. What does? A better system.
The commercials I would like to see (rather than the propaganda put out by union shills like Education Minnesota), would be to expose how little our young people know upon graduation. It is one thing to graduate, it is quite something else to graduate knowing something. I am not being critical of these kids. They are the victims of a failed system. Some of the kids in the inner city are the biggest victims. Many are being failed by the same system which failed their parent(s). The result - generational poverty.
There is an old saying. If you find yourself in a ditch, stop driving. Find a better way out. Or we can use the definition of insanity - doing the same thing over and over the same way expecting different results. Referendums are insanity. It is as simple as that. Referendums are nothing more than feeding the beast. Rather than killing the beast and replacing it with something which makes sense, we are putting money into a system with is beyond repair.
When you vote today, please do vote for the children. Not with more money, but with less. We need a new education system which goes back to yesteryear. A system which teaches facts and critical thinking - not how a kid "feels" and which bathroom to use. We owe it to our kids to restore sanity - not to continue the insanity. For the children - VOTE NO!
