We see a new oligarchy or Gilded Age in every phase of education. Republican and Democratic Governors alike such as Andrew Cuomo and Chris Christie from my neck of the woods) are forcing educationally unsound policies down the throats of students, educators, and parents as local control…long the last vestige of true American Democracy disappears. The oligarchy rules again.

However I believe there will be another great Progressive Era such as the one that followed our last Gilded Age 100 years go.

As Dylan Thomas Wrote:

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rage at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

We must all keep raging!
