never ever apologize to me for your dog being too excited to see me

a dog could knock me to the ground and give me a black eye and I would still hug it and love it because dogs hurt because they love too much I love dogs

how can i leave without hurting everyone that made me?


It’s common… to claim that improving the quality of education in inner cities and impoverished rural areas is the answer to halting the growing gap between rich and poor. This view reflects not only illusions about the potential for substantially improving education for children from low- and moderate-income families without deeper economic and political shifts, but also a serious misunderstanding about the growth of inequality over the last three decades.

…[I]nequality is not a question of the more-educated gaining at the expense of the less-educated due to inevitable technological trends. Rather, it has been a story in which a small group of especially well-situated workers — for example, those in finance, doctors, and top-level corporate executives — have been able to gain at the expense of almost everyone else. This pattern of inequality will be little affected by improving the educational outcomes for the bottom quarter or even bottom half of income distribution.

…[I]t… is not the case that plausible increases in education quality and attainment will have a substantial impact on inequality. This will require much deeper structural changes in the economy. As a practical matter, given the dismal track record of the education reformers, substantial improvement in outcomes for children from low- and moderate-income families is likely to require deep structural change in society as well.


Education is Not the Answer | Jacobin 

"Education" alone is not a plausible answer. When speaking of education, the solution to inequality must and ought to be framed qualitatively, as in education about what exactly, and in what new ways shall we henceforth cope. These are the fundamentals of an education that challenges inequality and sets out a path to abolish it. Degrees in nursing or biotechnology — any field, you name it — do nothing to challenge inequality without knowing the underlying fundamental that capitalism breeds it. If we are not educating that fact then we are just treading water.

Can you taste regret?
I think I can.
Last year had the distinct stench
of lost souls
clinging to sinking anchors,
we do not always float.

We are six in pigtails
and our mother promises us
things will always get better.

Sometimes better
does not look the way you expected.
It will show up at your house
unannounced, rude guested
how dare you interrupt my decay.

How dare you not save yourself?
