We live in a house of mirrors from the obscene egomania at the top to the militias with guns at the bottom. Many “elite” went to Harvard, Yale, Barnard because member’s of their Family were alumni, who then might endow them. I often think of MLK’s apt phrase about the “content of ones character.” That is what we want. Extraordinary people who have wisdom have never set foot in a ivy League school. We have had the best, lately endured the worst, and many in-between.
My parents never had the option to go to a College, but I have a Master’s Degree after an extraordinary amount of work with less than inspired Teachers. Old elite Money has destroyed America, not Education.
Get with the program !!!
