Those Kids Won't Be Learning Anything Useful
But they'll probably be a bunch of little neo-Marxist twits.
Watching Jeopardy tonight, and one of the contestants is apparently a teacher from Boston. During the useless personal chit-chat bit that I usually just ignore, she talked about how apparently Boston is breaking up big public high schools into smaller, themed high schools. She remarked that she was 'lucky enough' to get on a team whose school's theme was 'social justice,' whose goal was to make students into 'social activists' working for the aforementioned 'social justice.'
Apparently, actually getting an education and preparing kids for jobs or college isn't important to Boston.
And in my experience, 'social justice' is basically Leftist code for income redistribution or doing stupid things like supporting Palestinian terrorists. For some reason, the phrase 'social justice academy' makes me instantly think of Rachel 'Saint Pancake' Corrie.
Apparently, turning kids into screaming caricatures of everything that's wrong with the American Left is considered an acceptable outcome by the Boston School Board.
Anyone in Boston know anything about this?
I don't have much else on the top of my head to talk about, so I'm going to post some random thoughts about the Niners first two games.
-Damn they're winning ugly. They gained what, less than 200 yards offense per game? Outgained, by quite a bit, each time? 37 points in two games? The only good thing about that is they only allowed 33 points over those same two games. Which I think was the per game average for that particular stat the last two or three seasons.
-The offensive play calling has been conservative in the extreme. Against the Cards on MNF, it seemed like they ran Frank Gore, mostly up the middle, on almost every first down. Opposing teams are stacking the box, and until the Niners start going downfield to make them back off, they'll keep doing it. Hell, maybe even dig into the archives and pull some of those quick drop timing patterns from the Bill Walsh era. Or play action. Anything, just get the ball downfield more.
-Lastly, I'm not sure if the classic uniforms we saw in the opening game were just for that game, just for home games, or what, but they need to go back to them. Damn that took me back.
