We put the school board members on notice that they are next to endure the public exposure and scrutiny of the actvists since they drive 50% of our property tax bills. It's on every citizen's radar that they spend our money foolishly and carelessly. They give nary a thought to the homeowner writing the check.
We will start with Washington Township since it represents the district where a lot of our activists reside. (We always start the cleansing from our own back yards first).
Abdul Hakim Shabazz recently mentioned the word "educrat" to his loyal and ever-growing audience. We had a feeling what it meant, but wanted to be sure, so we did a little Internet digging. Education activist and author Susan Ohanian coined the word. Many school reform activists write about it.
An officer, administrator or other bureaucrat in a school district. The
word combines the Latin part of educator with the Greek part of bureaucrat. It
describes a special kind of person in the education world: pinheads who are so
process-oriented that they are more excited in the process of learning than the
myriad wonders that can be learned.
Used in a sentence:
"We might be able to afford decent math books
around here if the head office wasn't so glutted with educrats."
