Dr. Weiner knows more than anybody else what the neoliberal education agenda is, and it is not what the purpose of an education is supposed to be.
Instead of creating informed, well-rounded citizens with an equal opportunity for upward mobility if desired through college or unionized employment, the neolibs see it only as job training and a way to create a caste system where few EVER rise up the ladder. That in turn helps the economic elites keep their privilege because they don't have to share it with more people. It's totally anti-American and anti-human.
Since few jobs require anything beyond an eighth grade education, why bother spending the money on these "losers," and why bother spending any money on a professional teaching force?
This evil needs to be combatted or we will lose everything.
