Commissioners Turn Cleveland County toward Socialism!!! Accelerate Cleveland??? Certain to be a Failure from the Start!! Report and arguendo by Robert A. Williams

The Cleveland County Commissioners will meet tonight, June 18, 2019 to get a report on “Accelerate Cleveland” from Hugh Sandoe, a county Budget Analyst. I predict a costly failure, right from the start.

First of all, the Commissioners, Cleveland Community College and some un-named businesses have formed a partnership–actually a 501( c )(3) non-profit Corporation whose principle founding agent is Elliott Engstrom, a County Staff attorney. This corporation was founded less than six months ago and has no track record for anything. Always a bad sign.

Next, the purpose of this non-profit is to take the over 9,000 full-time workers in Cleveland County who are not making a “livable wage,” determine who is “motivated” get them to quit their jobs and take some kind of classes at Cleveland Community College so they can obtain the opportunity to interview with the business partners. All the while the County will PAY them a livable wage. Probably $15 per hour or more. Socialist Democrat Presidential Candidates Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, queer mayor Pete and people like AOC and the Muslim colluders in congress would love such a program as this.

The problem is in the numbers.

CCC is preparing for classes of 10-15 in a class with 2-3 classes per year. At most that is 45 people per year. With 9,000 people eligible divided by 45; it would take 200 years just to get through the list of eligible people today. All the while Cleveland County Schools are pumping out 1,100 graduating students per year, with 46% who can’t read and do math proficiently. That is 506 individuals not properly trained for the 21st century workforce. So, classes for 45 per year and 506 new untrained people per year equals a failed program right from the git-go.

All of this shows two things:

1. The math shows a failed program.
2. A socialist program, that historically has shown 100% failure rates.

Most telling of all is what the Accelerate Cleveland Program leaves out. A solution to the problem. The problem being Cleveland County Schools’ failure to provide the children of Cleveland County a proper education. The second problems with Accelerate Cleveland is CCS is also NOT a partner in this program.

All the while, that giant sucking sound is wasted tax dollars being sucked out of taxpayer’s pockets with absolutely no chance of success.

How much clearer do I have to be than that???

    “Education” Americas Fastest Growing Franchise.

    Here is what I think about this. I am in no way accusing anyone involved of doing anything illegal, all you need to do anything, legal or illegal is a license.

    An NPO , I suppose can be a good thing. IMHO they are also a funnel for a lot of money. When it comes to producing workers, which is all the Public Education system is about, funds can come from many, many sources. Every business whether local, statewide, federal and worldwide wants a piece of the education pie. A Community College IMHO , is nothing but, what used to be at best the 11th and 12th grades. All of these auxiliary programs, will help a few citizens, but who it helps the most is the people who get involved running the new franchise. What happens when these new “pie in the sky” programs start are good jobs for family and friends, who somehow got a better education than the masses, which doesn’t mean a good education. This and many more programs will assuredly start, and will accomplish little to nothing, except for the originators of the NPO. Listen folks, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Gap fillers that join the education franchise will never stop. The fool system is not education, but it is the goose that lays the golden egg for business and state employees. My advice to parents is get your children out, the powers that be, don’t give a rats ass about the children.
    Here is an example of an NPO, a gap filler that is the newest fix it project. The parents in Wake County Schools don’t want it, but who cares what parents want ?
