Coming soon to this page will be one of the chapters of The MACE Manifesto: The Struggle for the Soul of Public Education. The principal author is Founder and Chairman of the Metro Association of Classroom Educators (MACE), Dr. John R. Alston Trotter. MACE‘s Executive Vice Chairman, Norreese L. Haynes, contributes heavily to this shocking educational tome. Trotter and Haynes issue what appears to be a very cogitated call for revolution, not clarification or obfuscation, in public education.
These leaders of MACE appear to have prescient insights into what is wrong with public education today. Trotter and Haynes certainly do not pull any punches when they lower the boom on what they call “an educational state analogous to Germany‘s Weimar Republic in the 1920s or, better yet, the Pretorian Government of South Africa during the days of apartheid.” They contend that the waste and ineffectiveness and inhmanity of the public educational system in the United States is “both mind-boggling and unconscionable.” Dr. Trotter states: “It appears that no one wants to acknowledge what is fundamentally and systematically wrong with the system. Everyone appears to be worried about being politically corrrect and polite. Mr. Haynes and I are concerned about neither. We simply tell the truth and let the chips fall where they may.”
Stayed tune for a preview chapter of The MACE Manifesto to be released very soon.
