Abbot, Texas Libertarian Utopianist, Appoints anti-Public School Ideologue to head up Public Schools
It seems the Libertarian Utopia experiment currently underway in Texas is willing to sacrifice 94% of Texas kids in their effort to erase the 20th Century from history. It is noted in the article that 94% of Texas kids attend public schools, and now the next person in charge is a home-schooler.
Bahorich, a former communications director for Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick who will succeed outgoing chair Barbara Cargil, was quoted by Texas Public Radio as saying that “my research and my work and my desire and interests have all been in education.” But her appointment is drawing criticism not just from Abbott critics but also from some of Bahorich’s Republican colleagues. Texas Public Radio quoted Thomas Ratliff, a Republican member of the state Board of Education, as saying:
“Public school isn’t for everybody, but when 94-percent of our students in Texas attend public schools, I think it ought to be a baseline requirement that the chair of the State Board of Education have at least some experience in that realm, as a parent, teacher, something.”
This is nothing less than a race towards an imagined Utopia. …A magic Libertarian fairy-land where things just sort of take care of themselves. And if they don’t… well, it’s not MY kids that are doomed to fail basic educational standards. I can afford private school! It’s not my grandma being tossed to the wolves. I can afford to get her medical help! And no need for police either! When all the “good guys with guns” are present, nothing bad could ever go wrong!
