Both the love of power and the love of money are certainly the deciding factors when it comes to the destruction of the public school system. It has become just another fountain of wealth to be exploited by the unscrupulous while the good ones within the system and the students are help hostage to their ambition and greed."Sir, there are two passions which have a powerful influence in the affairs of men. These are ambition and avarice; the love of power and the love of money."
-Benjamin Franklin at the Constitutional Convention in 1787
I know plenty of good, conservative teachers. If they speak their opinions it's as if the jaws of hell open up and hate spews forth until they are intimidated back into silence or driven away.
I am also hearing of more and more students who are intimidated into silence on their conservative views and who are treated and graded unfairly by teachers for those views. Their parents are likewise intimidated if they have no other options for education.
Because, it is true, the love of money IS the root of all evil.
It shows in the United States school system.
