Radical Agenda EP074 – School Sucks

Brett Veinotte, producer of the School Sucks Podcast joins me in studio to discuss, well, all manner of things. I sought to bring him on primarily after episode 385 of his show delved into race tensions on college campuses as of late. When I contacted Brett, I found out he was a regular Radical Agenda listener, and we wound up having a discussion that probably should have been recorded, but wasn’t.

Brett is also a New Hampshire resident, motivated to move by the Free State Project. For those of us looking to see this political migration actually make positive change for a more free world, the prospects are unfortunately grim. From rampant social problems, to misled activism, to malformed philosophy and anti-intellectualism, the FSP is infested with toxic influence and going nowhere fast. I’ve summed this up to left wing r-selective influences as I’ve described before. But Brett’s podcast guests read like a list of my enemies, so it will be interesting to get his take.

Yet, New Hampshire is but a microcosm of a larger problem in the world. A growing detachment from reality, a refusal to think critically, rapidly escalating foreign tensions, and economic calamity often seems to be just around the corner. This, I theorize is resulting in an equal and opposite reaction to the left’s unimpeded global political success, and an increasing political polarization which threatens to fracture nations.

Can this be fixed? Should it be?

About our guest;

Brett Veinotte has worked in education for the last 12 years, in a variety of capacities. Most recently, he was the vice president of a tutoring and educational consulting company in New Hampshire. Brett began working as a counselor and outdoor educator at a boarding school in Vermont in 2000, and was eventually promoted to lead teacher of a specialized campus. He then taught at a private day school in Manchester, Vermont from 2004 to 2006, where he designed new curricula for all classes he taught, including American History, World History, Media Ethics, Film History and a variety of mathematics courses. He completed masters level coursework in educational leadership, and the secondary education certification program at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. After leaving classroom teaching in 2006, Brett began to work exclusively as a private tutor in the greater Boston area. Much of this work was related to standardized test prep but also included providing essay writing support to college applicants, leading training sessions for prospective teachers planning to take state certification exams and serving as a liaison between parents and public schools to address student needs and parent concerns.
