    ACCOUNTABILITY is the soft, white underbelly of the Corporate masters who would take over the Public School$.
    It is where they can be defeated, and they know it.

    As we have clearly seen,
    They will try to avoid accountability like The Plague.
    Especially AFTER using it to discredit and dismantle the Public School systems for their corrupt and larcenous purposes.

    We must make sure they ARE indeed held accountable for their stolen schools' performances, on
    every level.

    The Privateers must never escape accountability, as they so dearly would like to do.

    If they DO escape accountability, then I say, we may as well go ahead and also make murder, bank robbery and rape legal too, so everyday common criminals can walk free just like the Corporate criminals
    get to do.
    Oh, and give them a fat check for their efforts too, just like the Corporate fat-cat thieves.

    This is serious, people.

    Careers and children are being hurt, and even destroyed, right now, as you read this.

    I am currently living out this nightmare in my own school, and I can see and FEEL the human cost, each and every day.

    Trust me,
    KIDS and Teachers and Counselors and Principals and other Educational Professionals are being
    beaten down and crushed in America, at this very moment.

    It is a crime, and our response to it will determine whether crime now pays in our country, or not.

    Whatever happened to the idea that, CRIME DOES NOT PAY?

    If you are a Corporate Conservative, perhaps NOW,
    IT DOES PAY, right?
