San Francisco education reform: Be like Jimi Hendrix

Reason number 99,997,678 to homeschool your kids, via the SFChronicle:

There was a time when teachers would freak at the sound of Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze” or “Stone Free.” Now the San Francisco school district wants them to get in the spirit.

“Remember the first time you heard Jimi Hendrix?” reads the cover of the district’s new 51-page education guide. “Our plan is as transformational now as his music was then!”

The manifesto is aimed at transforming the educational “experiences for every child in each of our schools.”

To drive home the point, a portrait of the ’60s rocker – looking somewhat pensive, somber and perhaps stoned – graces the cover and every page of the manual.

The book also comes with a Hendrix poster and Hendrix-emblazoned canvas bag, which were handed out to a couple hundred administrators at Superintendent Carlos Garcia’s back-to-school confab in September.

Just what your kid needs: Government teachers pimping drug-addled rock stars as transformational heroes.
