Yet another offense from public educators.

Rate this post



On Friday at the National Center for Education Statistics website, the Department of Education posted a quote of the day from a great hero of the Obama administration: Mao Zedong. “Our attitude towards ourselves should be ‘to be satiable in learning’ and towards others ‘to be tireless in teaching.’”

As of this afternoon, the quote had been removed.

  1. the elderly chinese,say obama is like mao zedong,they didnt vote for him.

  2. “I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.”
    ― Mark Twain

  3. You might be interested to read an expanded version of this story. Look at what a Common Core aligned resource writes about Mao. I would expect you will see more articles friendly to Mao in the future in schools:
    We need to ensure CCSS is not implemented in our schools with CCSS aligned assessments.

  4. Chairman Mao, my hero. Damn, I lost my little red book or did I burn it?
    Why do you suppose we have a Department of Education in our federal government? Isn’t that what all the dick-tators do, you will learn only what we want you to learn!

    • To all thoose dudes at the Department of Ed. who thought that quote was cool, I got another one for ’em:
      “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” –Samuel Adams
