Rachel Jeantel: What happens when good schools go bad

This past week was a clear example of what happens when public schools fail.

Millions of Americans are watching the George Zimmerman trial. They heard testimony from Rachel Jeantel from Miami, Florida.  During her testimony, Jeantel stated, “No I can’t read. No sir, I can’t read and write cursive.”

Jeantel would have been in school during the Clinton/Bush era when Clinton used Marc Tucker’s Dear Hillary letter as the template to change American education from a fact based to value based model of school to work.  As a result a variety of the same programs like: Goals 2000, School to Work, Sustainable America, No Child Left Behind and now Common Core Standards were instituted without a pilot test model.  Would you drive a car without a test drive, why change school programs without a test model?

Every 4 years, the name of school programs were changed and a new program was offered in definite need of more money from taxpayers. Every program has created minimal to poor results. Why?  No one connects the dots and realized these programs are the same.  The names have been changed but the programs (curricula) are the same.  All are focused on one goal: Dumbing Americans dependent on government.  The goal of mediocrity, has been in place for decades. Rachel Jeantel is a result of that program. She can not read.  She can not read or write cursive.

Florida has Jeb Bush to thank for wasting about $150,000 (per student) on useless programs that produce human capital (the name used to describe students) who can not read or write.  Now Jeb is back with his friend Tony Bennett (kicked out of Indiana), and the Foundation for Excellence in Education, pushing Common Core with more of the same, at what cost in human capital like Jeantel?

CCS Training not learning, will produce more Rachel Jeantel’s who can’t read and can’t read and write cursive.  Our tax dollars are being used so the Bush clan, Neil and Jeb Bush, Gates, Murdock and all of their foreign investor friends will make billions at the expense of our children.  The purpose of CCS is simple, money power, control by the Globalists promoting the NWO for decades.

Don’t think this is a Black/White Crisis restricted to the poor communities like your legislators/DOE’s contend.  Bad school programs hit ALL AMERICAN human capital regardless of color.  Bad schooling is a direct result of the content of the socialist school programs we have suffered from for years.  Just listen to some of the answers from Miss Teen USA and from Conservative pundit Caleb Bonham who this week conducted the first ever “Obama Beauty Pageant” on the streets of Denver ­but it’s not what it sounds like.

Contestants in the “pageant,” who were all Obama supporters, were asked to answer two pageant questions that resulted in a pair of infamous responses from Miss South Carolina and Miss Utah.  Note: Who they support makes no difference.

While you are busy doing whatever necessary to keep your family happy and healthy the DOEd is busy figuring our how to convince you that they know best in rearing your human capital. They are creating more Jeantel’s who will become our legislators and will pass more bills without reading them (maybe they can’t read either) using fuzzy math learned in government training facilities.  I can’t even call them schools because little learning takes place. Training is for animals. Oh, I forgot, that is why they call us “Sheeple”.  Humans are only as good as their ability to work for the state.

We look at Jeantel and every talking head chimes in and makes excuses for her behavior claiming that is her culture. NO IT IS NOT.Culture is learned behavior.  For a quick definition of culture, mores, values and norms see this short video:

This “culture” is created by school programs and is racially charged to continue to promote divide and conquer. By not requiring goals, consequences and demanding excellence school programs are now destroy American exceptionalism by elimination of vocabulary, spelling, grammar, reading, cursive, civics, literature  and math.  These classes are replaced with social programs like – How to have sex, do drugs, be LGBT or become a bully.

Remember children have a need to be different, to succeed in something just special to them. They want to be different so they will tattoo, pierce, smoke, drink etc.  So the minute you tell them NO, they will find a way to do it.  Then taxpayers are told we have more drugs problems, sex problems, bullying problems so we need more money and another layer of bureaucracy to “fix” it.

In reality, if we would stop social programs in school, and teach that actions have consequences, people would learn to make the right choices.  But then we would eliminate a government program necessary to control humans.

The Rachel Jeantel’s of America are the result of bad school curricula.  Yet we are taught to blame everything except the problem- the content of inferior school curricula and the Pavlov/Skinner method of training.  Human capital are trained. Instead of animal training like:  sit you will get a biscuit, they are trained to get an award for showing up.  So they are trained to show up; not learn.

Why are Human Capital no longer taught and are trained? Fact: the difference between animals and humans is the human ability to think and to reason. Therefore, school must train Human Capital not to think, just push an APP.  Everyone must be the same, otherwise how will the government control millions of people?  Don’t think kid, just push an APP and you will get a degree in technology. You can’t think or you might become competition and that is unsustainable.

Human capital are told, “No need to know facts, if you need answers, just push an AP use a calculator.”  The government will give you your answers, not you or family.  After all what do your parents know?  Your parents are the evil polluters of the earth.

The problem is not a racial issue as you are being led to believe.  This is a concerted effort to destroy Americans, diminish family, God and Country by using our children.  Just open your eyes and ears and listen.  O’Reilly, Hannity, Beck, Leno, Watters and all other journalists who do man in the street segments asking questions like, “Where is America on a map?” never follow up to a Don’t know answer with the question, “Did you learn about America in school?”

Why? because the answer is “NO, I was not taught in school.”  They might have to ask, what did you learn in school?

When American history is started at 1865, how does Human Capital learn about America?  They don’t.  All of those intellectual talking heads state, ” Knowing America is not necessary to be trained for a job, so why junk up the human capital’s brain will those irrelevant facts about Freedom, Liberty, God and Country.”

So we blame everything else because it is too hard to look at the actual curricula and texts. We have allowed Progressives free reign and all they have done is reign in any innovative or creative thought. Why? To eliminate competition, ya think?  Think Bill Gates will bow to another Bill Gates? Think again. The last thing people in control want to do is lose control.

We say we want to take America back.  Well how about starting at the school?  Here is a challenge to every legislator promoting the new untested, unproven fad for the destruction of America called Common Core Standards.  Since the program and standards are not ready, how about we do something different?  Something Americans have never done in the schools before, something different instead of the same old, same old like using another untested program which cost more and may fail causing more division.

Let’s take 100 of the worst schools in each state.  50 will get CCS, 50 will get a traditional America education of basic skills learned in the 50’s before any changes were made and America was in the top 10.

Then let’s evaluate by giving all students the same test of basic questions. Can they: read, write, spell, evaluate, are grammatically correct, prioritize, know English, America, civics and can they do math.  Are they cognizant of World dynamics and can they function in a global society? We will then have a clear comparison and we can end all the fighting.

To all of the people against Common Core, just saying no to CCS is not the solution, because changing an operating system (CCS) without changing the content changes nothing.  Having an alternative does.


  • Our Founding Fathers had an IQ upwards from 125.
  • In the 1970 s the average American IQ was 100-110.
  • Today the average IQ is 90-100.
  • Mission accomplished

If we want to make a difference, we must do things differently. When was the last time you heard any official say – Think outside the box?  Wonder why? Could it be that if you think, you might not need an APP?

If you can read and understand this column count yourself as lucky because Rachel cannot.
