Readers can take a look at the mendacious and sophistic Brice Harris, the former Chancellor of the Los Rios College. He is a ‘Lumina Foundation’ made man. If you do not know what Lumina is, do Google ‘Danny Weil and Lumina’ and you will find out fast that this criminal syndicate, formerly with Sallie Mae or the ‘outfit’, groomed and paid Harris so he could become Chancellor of ALL the community or should I say, corporate colleges and universities?
These paid supplicants are all on board with the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and the Wall Street hucksters looking to stuff and engorge themselves on the $650 Billion dollar educational industry they have created.
The visage of James Merisotis of the Lumina Foundation
From charter schools to vouchers, from phony Student Success Outcomes (paid for by Lumina) to privatized for profit drive-by colleges, these miscreants have no morals, show no empathy and are in the process of caving the public commons while they feast on hefty CEO salaries and destroy public education.
It’s a shame, really but understandable. America is a banana republic now; in-sourcing and outsourcing labor so the ruling class has no need for an educated populace. In fact, after the 1960’s, they fear it!
No, obedience training is again the norm. Harris is just one in a long line of courtiers for power. He and Jerry Brown (the one candidate whom has taken more money from for-profit predatory colleges than any other political sharpie) are all invested in the demolition of the public commons. This is a corporate democratic plan (http://www.dailycensored.com/the-obama-2020-plan-for-education-chump-change-you-cant-believe-in/) (http://www.dailycensored.com/part-two-the-obama-2020-plan-for-higher-education-chump-change-you-cant-believe-in/)
Their rhetoric is soaring and the corporate coverage of their crimes clever and very helpful. Even though Harris is on video back in 2012, he did so well his masters made him Corporate College Chancellor.
For a great site check out the chart at about who now owns ‘publicly’ subsidized private education go to: http://www.pearltrees.com/#/N-play=0&N-s=1_3214826&N-fa=1361080&N-u=1_125998&N-p=24058089&N-f=1_3214826). The same courtesans that have leveraged philanthropy monies to gain federal and state funding for charter schools are the same sultry scoundrels who are involved in privatizing higher education. Time to tie the struggle together so we can unite and fight the entire privatization of education.
“The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.”
― Joseph Goebbels
“Success is the important thing. Propaganda is not a matter for average minds, but rather a matter for practitioners. It is not supposed to be lovely or theoretically correct. I do not care if I give wonderful, aesthetically elegant speeches, or speak so that women cry. The point of a political speech is to persuade people of what we think right. I speak differently in the provinces than I do in Berlin, and when I speak in Bayreuth, I say different things than I say in the Pharus Hall. That is a matter of practice, not of theory. We do not want to be a movement of a few straw brains, but rather a movement that can conquer the broad masses. Propaganda should be popular, not intellectually pleasing. It is not the task of propaganda to discover intellectual truths.”
― Joseph Goebbels
But do not be fooled: these propagandists are the enemy and the one percent who now control America.
Take a look at Harris on video. Then read Occupy Bob’s response. Bob is a soulful activist who puts his words and actions on the line. We need more people like Bob and perhaps a few good laborers to roll out the guillotines.
America is not only publicly broke, but so are students, privately, to the tune of over a trillion dollars and they are carrying public debt as private debt.
The hustlers on Wall Street have asset stripped America. But they are not through. They do it under the auspices of ‘helping students’ or ‘access to college’ — all part of the Obama 20/20 plan (http://www.dailycensored.com/the-obama-2020-plan-for-education-chump-change-you-cant-believe-in/ ) (http://www.dailycensored.com/obamas-2020-plan-for-higher-education-the-lumina-foundation-and-the-new-21st-century-social-darwin-movement/).
After you have seen Harris wonk on about students, whom he never sees nor cares little for, then read Bob’s scathing letter.

Brice Harris, former Chancellor of Los Rios College and a member of the Student Success Task Force, speaks at the January 9, 2012 meeting of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges.
If anyone is confused about what is happening to CCSF RIGHT NOW and what will be happening in the near future please check out this video. Please hear words, like robust, equity and roadmap and know that what we are experiencing is no accident. These buzzwords are part of the Lumina agenda. The Student Success Task force is terrorizing the college as we speak and Brice Harris was part of it.
From SLO’s to textbook, and software takeovers, we are being used like slaves. Realize that the entire education system in America is being controlled by this phony, (largest ever established) non-profit called ‘Lumina’. It’s really a lobbyist organization pushing boiler plate legislation through state governments using funds from Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, and the Koch Brothers, to name a few.
Their agenda is not to help the youth of America but to force millions of students into debt and to privatize education so that more taxpayer dollars goes into their deep pockets. The legislators and politicians like Brice Harris are making a fortune, CEO’s like Agrella and Pamela Fisher, and Tyler are finding this to be a means to collect their bonuses not to help anybody.
Below something in response to Steven Brown, chair of the Horticulture Department at CCSF:
Steven, That second YouTube video, a masterpiece of propaganda, all the perfectly manicured with soaring rhetoric wording meant to seduce, all the talking points meant to lead the observer away from the sleight of hands of the controller (swindler), all the shining gilt enticing the eyes, but encasing a turd, an underlying criminal enterprise to steal from the Commons and give to the 1%.
Yes, male-female spokespersons and black and white skinned American academicians (?) in respectable suits. Who wouldn’t buy a slice of that waterfront property as the Earth heats up and the oceans rise?
If our educational systems have not succeeded in teaching critical thinking, and questioning beyond the frothy surface, then Public Education, as it has benefited this culture of ours in the past, is doomed.
When I hear that less than half of the teachers at CCSF voted in this last election, and that the majority of them voted out of Fear, I’m less inclined to believe that these academicians have any concept at all of critical analysis, must less than that they are actually teaching the same.
__Bob of Occupy
Right, Bob many of these teachers are the blind leading the blind. We tried to reform education honestly many times in US history, and now we see ‘reform’ captured by the one percent — for many teachers balked at collaborative teaching and problem solving — opting for insipid individualism and ‘ownership’ of their classes. The fragmentation of education into ‘specialities’ aided and abetted the crushing of true and honest reform in the interest of critical thinking for supposed security and independance. Unions and teachers must accept their own responsibility for setting the material stage and subjective stage for reactionary takeover. The complicity is seen through the stagnation and submission.
