Tony Flitcraft: Utopian ideals not a good fit for our schools

Tony Flitcraft

To clarify Mr. Hurlbert’s reference to “Utopian idea,” let me explain: Utopia was a land far away in which the people shared all their belongings and earnings among themselves. Those capable of achieving more gave their surplus to those who achieved less. Everybody lived happily ever after.

That’s the way Karl Marx envisioned how society was supposed to be. He called it the “Communist Manifesto.”

This notion is logically absurd and has been tried several times and always failed. What makes us believe it can be succeed in our school district?

I hope our new school board will recognize this disaster-in-the making.
