ASK AND IT WILL BE GRANTED TO YOU, AND VICE-VERSA | 2002-06-01
When education specialists or sociologists or psychologists show up in front of congressional committees, nobody asks them if their programs WORK. Since we started hiring thousands of Criminology graduates to be our experts on crime, the rate has shot up out of sight.
The more money we hand over to our educational experts, the worse every measurable result gets.
By now, in any rational world, it should take incredible gall for a social "expert" to show up in front of a congressional committee. But in the real world, that never even occurs to anybody.
The fact is that we respect failure and we are happy to pay for failure if you show up with the right degree or the right uniform. It never seriously occurs to liberals or conservatives that we have a right to demand any results from anybody who draws public money.
The Bible says "Seek and ye shall find." No matter how hard you seek, the fact is that you may not find. But if you don't even ASK for results, you certainly won't get them.
