Because it didn’t fit the points I was making, I neglected to mention one of the most revealing, and most depressing, tidbits about the Dept. of Education mentioned in the Washington Post article I cited:
With about 600 employees and 12 field offices, the Office for Civil Rights is one of the largest units in the department. Its annual budget is $103 million.
Does anyone really believe that “one of the largest” problems of American education today is rampant, pervasive discrimination against minorities?
