In short, a racist, pro-segregation school privatization “nuclear option” of the 1950s has recrudesced, to be recycled and repackaged, with the help of Michelle Rhee and her supporters (such as New York mayor Michael Bloomberg), as a panacea for all that’s said to be ailing America’s schools.
As I write in my report,
“This is mind boggling, because the mechanism Talmadge envisioned, to protect Georgia’s racist regime of segregated schools, is exactly the mechanism now used to channel taxpayer dollars to private schools in twelve states across the union.”
I’m pretty sure that ubiquitous public schools, with their gas guzzling yellow buses and teachers unions and very poor returns on investment, are on their last legs. Schooling is going to be privatized as a way of adapting to a contracting economy and high fuel prices, and eventually universal government funded education is going to be phased out altogether. It will be kept in place for privileged areas — Jewish areas and government worker areas, but a lot of us are going to be simply cut loose from the limited government pie.
There is a very interesting phenomenon at the intersection of politics and education; namely, that if you are politically incorrect, then educational institutions gatekeep you out of working as a teacher or professor. They don’t understand a fundamental law of nature — keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.
I desperately wanted to be a professor of Slavic languages and literature, or history, or “area studies.” I saw with my own eyes how my college hired terribly incompetent language professors (who just happened to be Jewish), and I thought, “I could do better than that!.” But there’s very little demand for foreign language teachers, and the jobs that exist are based on “connections.” So I was cut loose into the “wild” where I did information technology, appliance repair, funeral directing, some freelance Russian-English translating, and freelance property management as well as learning fruit and vegetable horticulture. And I’ve got even better things in the works.
I have seen the phenomenon of right wing minded wannabe scholars and professors getting “cut loose” into the world, and they end up doing things much greater than they would have as “education professionals.” Even Michael Savage talks about how he wanted to be a professor of ethnobotany but was kept out because of affirmative action, so now he’s a multimillion dollar right wing radio host. And there’s a young man who was treated very badly for politically incorrect deviationism by his schoolmates. He wanted to major in history, but we redirected him to petroleum engineering.
So cutting us loose will be a great blessing beyond our wildest dreams, and I think it’s likely that the US government is going to “cut loose” White Middle America from public education dollars (and other dollars too). On the one hand, they like indoctrinating us; on the other hand, they are going to need to use the limited dollars for “equality” and educating the grandchildren of Holocaust survivors and descendants of slaves as well as recent immigrants of color.

Cutting off public education to Whites would be just like this cartoon. We will be infinitely better off without public education, and I’m fairly certain that we’ll be cut off from it by politicians who fancy that they are “punishing” us.
We’ll do homeschooling and neighborhood schooling, and farming and trades, just like we did in the olden days, and we’ll become truly feral.
