No More Homework in France? But How Will the Children Learn?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Audio and Transcript – So what the president is saying, what French President Francois Hollande is saying is that government knows best. “Let me tell you, you hoi polloi, you nitwittery…French Riviera are not capable of teaching the finer points of ze classical education to ze little boys and little girls of gay Paris.”  So what he’s basically saying is that only the state can do this.  That is exactly opposite.  That is backwards, precisely backwards.  As a matter of fact, yesterday on my video commentary for the local ABC channel, there’s a big hoop-dee-doo going on here in Louisiana because Governor Jindal is actually saying, one of the things he’s doing partially correct, is saying to the people of Louisiana: We are putting too many resources and too many children into our college system.  They don’t need to be here.  Check out the rest in today’s audio and transcript…

Mike:  Greg in Orlando, you’re next.  How are you, sir?

Caller Greg:  I’m doing far out, solid, right on, King Dude.

Mike:  I’m glad to hear it.

Caller Greg:  This is the first time I’ve had the pleasure to speak with you.  I’ve been a fan of your show for several years.  I, too, am a reformed decepticon, as you say.

Mike:  Congratulations.

Caller Greg:  Two years ago I took the founders red pill and have never been the same.

Mike:  Welcome aboard.  Thank you.

Caller Greg:  The reason for my call is I was wondering if you had seen, you probably have — there was a blog post on ABC News that I saw about the French president in his endeavor to ban homework.  I wondered if you’d seen that.

Mike:  No, I had not.

Caller Greg:  It’s quite interesting.  His theory is that education is societal and therefore all the education should take place in the school since the school is the purview of the society or government.  When you have learning that takes place at home, it gives children of wealthy families an unfair advantage.  This epitomizes everything that’s wrong with this philosophy.  I think it’s unfortunately indicative of where we’re headed.

Mike:  How would it go over if you tried to ban homeschooling in the United States?

Caller Greg:  I don’t think it would — let’s just say that might be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.

Mike:  So what the president is saying, what French President Francois Hollande is saying is that government knows best.  [mocking Hollande] “Let me tell you, you hoi polloi, you nitwittery…French Riviera are not capable of teaching the finer points of ze classical education to ze little boys and little girls of gay Paris.”  So what he’s basically saying is that only the state can do this.  That is exactly opposite.  That is backwards, precisely backwards.  As a matter of fact, yesterday on my video commentary for the local ABC channel, there’s a big hoop-dee-doo going on here in Louisiana because Governor Jindal is actually saying, one of the things he’s doing partially correct, is saying to the people of Louisiana: We are putting too many resources and too many children into our college system.  They don’t need to be here.

We know this because a full one-third to 40 percent, depending on the school, of 2010 enrollees at the Louisiana State University, LSU, system, had to go through remedial courses in order to proceed to their first year of actual college education.  Of course, the liberals out there, [mocking] “It’s because there’s not enough money, not enough funding in the schools.”  If the pathetic state of curriculum affairs is un-learnable or un-understandable by a freshman in college, folks, we are beyond having arrived at the Rubicon.  At least Governor Jindal is saying you can’t afford this and not every kid should be receiving a subsidized education from the people of the State of Louisiana.  I pointed out, and I just made two instances, that the great Jay Willard Marriot — AG, you ever stayed at a Marriott Hotel?

AG:  I have.

Mike:  The founding father of the Marriott Hotel chain was J. Willard Marriott.  Guess how many years of college J. Willard Marriott had.

AG:  I don’t know.

Mike:  Let me let Dean Wormer answer that for you.  [clip of Dean Wormer from Animal House] “Zero point zero.”  J. Willard Marriott’s higher education consisted of a trek from Ogden, Utah to San Francisco, California shepherding 3,000 sheep on a railcar.  J. Willard Marriott’s higher education consisted of being a missionary for the Mormon Church.  My other point was, one of the greatest entrepreneurial minds of the last half of the last century was Steve Jobs.  Steve Jobs famously went to college in Reading, Washington.  He only stayed for six months and then he dropped out.  He would go to the university and hang out in some classes but he wasn’t actually enrolled.  Walter Isaacson, who wrote the book Steve Jobs, discovered that Jobs said the only thing he learned in college was calligraphy.  When he was learning calligraphy, he took note of how you have to have a proper relationship and the proper distances between letters to make them look right.  They built that into Macintosh font recognition.  My punchline for my commentary was there’s nothing you could learn in calligraphy at an institution of higher learning that you couldn’t learn at Amazon.com for $25.

  • I agree Mike regarding the “need” for a college education.

    But if you bring this up with most libtards/regressives, their kneejerk response is that you are somehow ‘denying’ college education to people (usually poor/minorities) and ‘who are you to decide who goes to college’ and all the other such canned responses.

    These people can’t get it thru their heads, no matter how many examples you give of college dropouts or ‘never wents’ who were hugely successful (which you can add Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, among others), that not everyone needs (or perhaps should) go to college.

    Yes, some people need to.
    Yes, for some careers, you need to.
    Many others, no.
