U.S. House of Representatives
Education Committee Hearing on the Future of Public Education in America
Decorated Marine veteran and now billionaire James Holloway has been scolding these politicians for thirty minutes.
Holloway paints a lurid scene to remember. “Gentlemen and ladies, I find it very ironic that you continue to build upon a clearly broken education model and deflect any suggestions to re-tool American education.”
TV cameras pan over the angry and frustrated members of the committee as Holloway concludes his remarks.
“Eleven of you have graduated from private schools while the other three attended a high-end public school. Before you turn down my ideas and once again drive more nails into the future of our young people, you should have your children and grandchildren to attend the lowest performing school in your district. You people have no idea how bad public education is in American cities.”
“At least you listened. For that I thank you. Now I will prove to you that it can be done.” Mr. Holloway walks out. You could hear crickets chirp in the hearing room.
