Ky Lite Guv: Education is For Job Training, Not Enlightenment

Jenean Hampton certainly has the Koch Brothers corporatist line down pat. In a lords-n-serfs economy, the last thing the masters need is serfs who can think critically and might object to being drones for starvation wages.

James Bruggers at the Courier:

Lt. Gov. Jenean Hampton told the editorial staff of the Eastern Kentucky University student newspaper that colleges and students should focus on programs that produce jobs.

“I would not be studying history," she was quoted as saying in an article posted on The Eastern Progress' website Thursday.


The Eastern Progress also reported that Hampton called higher education a "privilege," and "not a right."

And it quoted her as suggesting she does not want her taxes to support universities.

“Those of us who go to work must give part of their earnings to put you through college, and I disagree with that," the newspaper reported.
Yes, Hampton is African-American.  Promoting a future of slave labor. Shame on her.
