In the lustful quest for the justifiable inequalities brandished by stark Darwinism, the colorful pageantry of unabashed competition in Tinseltown is manifested through tawdry award shows and meaningless trophies forged from plentiful elements.
While the Grammy may be the epitome of the ultimate insult marked by universal critique and eons away from a construct of platinum or gold, local public school districts surrounding the expanses of the film industry, fault lines and smog imported by the Cartel, are now entirely immersed within the Oscar’s style model of self-evaluation and possible self-aggrandizement manifesting the idea of nuclear explosion grade entitlement.
Recently, the LA Unified School district received arguably the biggest award ever, not only in size, but in societal weight, as the struggle of a competent and dedicated teacher, fully endorsed the affliction of repugnant policy and ridiculous antics of the governing body of educational institutions, in earning a highly dubious honor.
The struggles of science teacher Greg Schiller in clawing back his way back to restore his professional reputation and dignity from the insane depths of horrendous policy, after simply providing advisement to students on science projects is nothing short of remarkable on one hand, and an indictment as to the current trends in culture, with regards to the nanny blanket forced on children, worthy of a Banglore slum alley battle mono-on-mono with Jack Reacher. According to the LA Times, Schiller was officially exonerated of all alleged “wrong doings” according to the public school layers of bureaucracy, however the the process endured three needless years of time, effort and of course district money in reaching an absolution. The circus literally began as an assistant principal literally squawked to superiors that something was amiss at the science fair.
Apparently, Schiller consulted with students on two controversial science projects that were determined by LA Unified officials to be dangerous, because the connotation towards firearms and weapons, and the science teacher was promptly suspended from his educator duties, and the experiments ultimately confiscated by the district. The actual demonstrations focused on the concepts of utilizing air pressure and electricity as propulsion systems, with possible applications populating the spectrum of technology. However, one of the experiments included the word “gun” within its title and of course staff was forced to act swiftly for the sake of the children and the overall safety of the institution. Instead of adhering to the tenets of science and experimentation, the district chose the course of most resistance and facilitated a thorough inquiry on the matter, using public monies in the process. Thankfully, Schiller chose to go toe to toe with the brass in a grueling Mayweather type three year struggle, in ultimately earning vindication. Throughout his battle with district legislation, students and parents displayed an outpouring of public support for the brave educator.
In certain realms of society where religion is a taboo concept within the public sphere, is science now being bisected by conditional and convenient interpretations? In this logistical impossibility, how can the merits of pure science be exploited as the pathway to enlightenment, when a benign tool of education and advancement is unjustly labeled dangerous simply from the title of the project and banned from district property? This is a prime example of the passive brainwashing that has occurred over the last four decades. Unfortunately, the term “gun” is so over utilized as a spark for a political firestorm, that students are forced to go the route of politicians in obscuring regulations by means of the super thesaurus, in describing a firearms as a cobalt-nitrate anti-oppressive projectile guiding mechanism. The wasted effort is disturbingly sad as life is too short, but at least there are teachers like Greg Schiller, who actively interact and guide the future leaders of our nation, and can see past a pension.
