Why Trump. Give me a sec here…
In 1967, the Johnson admin initiated Project Follow Through, the largest & most comprehensive study of pedagogical methods ever. The top publishers of K-12 curricula were funded to implement their curricula in their ideal methods – assistants, materials, etc. Some focused on math, some on reading, some on self esteem. Then another guy, not part of the teaching establishment joined with a different idea. He was an ad guy. In our capitalist society, who can be more interested in learning how people absorb information… than an ad guy?
He beat the math curricula in math, the reading guys in reading, the self esteem guys in self esteem. He kicked ass. Kids under his methodology showed a statistically significant advantage in High School from his system in 1st & 2nd Grade
The final results of the study were sanitized so that “everybody won.”
Why? The establishment refused to accept one not of their own.
In 1980, Reagan…
In 2016, Trump…
Getting the point?
Between? Establishment pols. Useless wars. Trillions of debt. A society in decline
The establishment is more interested in stasis than progress, in tradition than innovation. In their own ass than a disruptive – and better – future.
Disruption. Innovation. A better future.
