Evil Geniuses by Kurt Andersen

The book: Evil Geniuses: The Unmaking of America: A Recent History by Kurt Andersen is a must read book if you want to understand the underpinnings of financial inequality and how it brings us to our horribly divided society. He gives a lot of credit to the Business Round Table, an organization that I mention in my books on White Chalk Crime, as instrumental in ┬ámessing up our schools. I never doubted that our schools contributed significantly to inequality given that only those with money to compensate for our failing schools have a chance to get their ticket to the American Dream. But now I understand the origins of White Chalk Crime as well as how intentional messing up our schools was. The only remaining question is whether the evil geniuses needed to do much other than just let the crooks running our schools run them into the ground or were they responsible for stacking our schools with the crooks that now hold absolute power? Based on my teaching experience in the 60’s at which time I encountered a district with a White Chalk Criminal superintendent and principal, they weren’t savvy as to how to fix their boards and have their way. Their Board voted them out. That no longer happens as all White Chalk Criminals know to have total control over their Boards, politically choosing their members. Certainly the right wing evil geniuses described in this book opened the door to unstoppable crime in our schools.
