Davis GuggenheimÂ Â on the failure of America’s schools:
If you asked me where it all went wrong,
Â And why we find today
Â That certain children’s lives are ruined,
Â Broken dreams just tossed away,
Â I would tell you a tale jobs hiring near me so sad to hear
Â You might not believe it’s true.
Â It’s true, it’s sad, and terribly bad.
Â The question is: what will you do?
It seems that it is not a crime,
Â And not against the law,
Â To miseducate millions of children
Â As long as they are poor.
Â You can fail them year after year,
Â And no one will give a damn.
Â That is, no one except you and me,
Â But we’re quiet and injustice stands.
In fact, adults seem to have the right
Â To get paid while doing harm.
Â Even if they have slapped and cursed,
Â And pinched those little arms.
Â And some do worse, lest we forget,
Â Those who punch, demean, molest,
And they get to stay, can’t be sent away.
Â Who supports this system anyway?
I ask who created this broken system,
Â Where for decades poor children have failed?
Â And why can’t we change such dysfunction
Â Where for most, failed schools lead to jail?
Â And who in the hell defends such a thing,
Â Where the evidence is clear and true?
Â I, for one, have said enough is enough,
Â I hope I can count o https://xjobs.org n you too.
Our children are waiting for someone,
Â A hero who’s ready to fight.
Â To end decades of injustice,
Â To know and to do what is right.
Â And what I am saying is shocking,
Â But what I am saying is true.
Â The hero children are waiting for,
Â That hero, it’s me and it’s you.
