This Valedictorian Understood Her Journey!
Her name is Erica Goldson, and she is/was Valedictorian of Coxsackie-Athens High School last month. She decided that her graduation speech would have an interesting twist: she took the opportunity to criticize the very concept of a valedictorian and to tear apart her whole educational experience. I couldn’t agree more with her thoughts which can be seen in the video above or read in full here.
Everything that she detected as being "wrong" with her 'education' will be repeated, expanded, and exaggerated under the regime of Shamwow's feculent, fascistic (test nazi), privatizer, charter school exploiter, militarist, one-size-fits-all (dark people) Education Secretary Arne Duncan abd Shamwow's so-called "Race to the top," an even more cynical ploy for National Standards than even el Chimperor's NCLB.
