Schools of education are still graduating way too many people for the jobs available. There needs to be a moratorium on admissions to teacher education programs.
It's virtually impossible up here in Oregon to even make the cut for a teaching job.
Fat chance this millionaire or whatever he is will ever get elected to public office. He KNOWS that to have a thriving society where there is more economic equality, HE and his overclass will be better off.
It's a law of nature, folks. You can't have wealth concentrated into few hands, especially when that wealth was mostly STOLEN from the rest of us.
There are too many of us peons and too few of the elites.
