EVE OF DESTRUCTION of public education

See also

The education world, it is exploding

Criticism flarin’, teachers leavin’,

You’re enough to know, that this is not education
You don’t believe in testing, but you have no choice but to do it.
And even the teacher jail has quality teachers in it.

But you tell me
That they are trying to destroy public education
Ah, you do believe
We’re on the eve
Of destruction.

Don’t you understand where education is today
Can’t you feel the childrens’ futures flyin away
If this continues there will be followers not thinkers
There’ll be no one to save our world when it gets grave
[Take a look around ya boy, it's bound to scare ya boy]

And you tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend
That they are trying to destroy public education
Ah, you do believe
We’re on the eve
Of destruction.

Yeah, the publishers and reformers send my blood a boilin
They can’t tell the truth as they make it up,
School board members aren’t for the students
And testing alone is not education
When caring about the students is disintegrating
All the teachers and parents are feeling frustrating

And you tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend
That they are trying to destroy public education
Ah, you do believe
We’re on the eve
Of destruction.

Think of all the people out to take our money
They want profits and care nothing about the kids
They never visit schools so what do they know
But they make decisions that affect us all
The ringin of the bells, the tests and pressures
You can raise your scores one year and drop the next
Blame it all on the teachers, but don’t forget they made you

And you tell me over and over and over and over again, my friend
That they are trying to destroy public education
Ah, you do believe
We’re on the eve
Of destruction
