Pat's plutocracy

DAG McCrony tells us yet again that the purpose of education is to churn out drones to do the work that makes Art Pope and his friends richer.

Of course, Pat begins his ignorant missive by repeating the lie he tells repeatedly.

McCrory said that business people told him that they had a hard time filling job openings even when unemployment was high.

As usual, Pat doesn't mention who told him that, and reporters fail to fact check the lie.

Pat then tells us how he intends to please his bosses, Art Pope and ALEC.

He said that tax dollars for education “should be directed based on what commerce demands and the market demands.”

North Carolina subsidizes all students at public universities equally, but “I think we’re going to have to re-shift our subsidizing,” he said. Some classes in the future “might not be as incentivized” as others, based on market demand, he said without elaborating.

Ah, yes, the unmitigated free market is where it's at, Pat. Everything, including education, exists to serve corporations. And by the way, Pat, "incentivize" is a corporate-jargon non-word. Which is perfect for you.


Pat's ignorance

could be even greater, as hard to believe as that is.

If Pat's policies had been in effect when Pat got his liberal arts degree, he sure wouldn't have been "incentivized", because corporations wouldn't have realized at the time that they had any use for a dishonest, babbling fool.
