Another Brick in the Wall – a 21st Century Howl

We don’t need no ed reformers
We don’t need no tests no more
The lack of knowledge in the classroom
We don’t need no data wall

Hey Reformers
Just go and leave our school

All in all we’re just another
soul searching light

We don’t need no politicians
We don’t need no laws at all
The noose of power is so ugly
We don’t need your voice no more

Hey Politicians
Just get out of our classroom

All in all we’re just another
soul searching light

We don’t need no corporate types
We don’t need their callous cash
Their money buys our very thoughts
Go take your big bucks out the door

Hey Big Business
Just leave our schools alone

All in all we’re just another
soul searching light

All in all we’re just another
soul left in fright

All in all we’re just another
brick in the wall

Based on the classic Pink Floyd –

  1. Is that you, Jo?!!! I don’t know about Pink Floyd, but my Eric used to talk about “The Wall”. It was a concert or an album. Whatever…I love it. (Is this called “a rant?”) (I keep thinking you’re still in school and forget you’re on vacation!). Bill said they were painting Tuesday. How does it look? Tomorrow we go to Costco for a hearing test. Rich’s hearing aides are worthless now, and Ret said Larry loves his, and she said they can go in and have them adjusted whenever. His VA ones were ok in the beginning, but it’s an hour’s drive and half a day wasted for adjustments. Today was the dentist for him. All I do is go for doctor appointments…! maybe we can do the Jean luncheon again one day. When do you vacation? Sweet dreams! Love u. nan

  2. YES. And, in a roundabout way, the original song’s lyrics complaining about the top-down indoctrination of social “place” rings true with our modern-day “give poor children and the unwanted students” a minimal, mind-controlling computer education; never let them rise!
