Future Americans

Nobody asked but …

A horrendous TV news link appeared in today’s Facebook news feed, “Iowa school district promises to end seclusion rooms use.”  I read the term, “seclusion” as  “solitary confinement,” and I flash back to scenes from “Cool Hand Luke.”

How many public school districts are getting away with this kind of bureaucratic insanity?  If it took the feds 4+ years to bring their suasion to bear, with a half-baked solution (at best), how many eons will it take to gain a smattering of confidence in a continuation of this system?

Have we heard enough?  Probably not.
