It is easy to criticize the public school system with statements like "so many kids come out of school and can't even read"

If you really look into it, you'll find that many kids do very well in the public school system. Typically these are the children of middle class parents and/or affluent parents. These kids are exposed to books from an early age and by the time they get to the first grade they are already reading.

If you go to economically disadvantaged areas, you'll find most of the kids are not achieving anywhere close to their grade level.

It doesn't take a great thinker to deduce that people who have hit the middle class have higher expectations for their children and are investing more time in teaching their children at home.

The kids also get to benefit from watching their parents make decisions like when and where to buy a house. Maybe one goes back to night school, completes a program and gets a better job. These are the kids that will have a much better chance at being middle class when they grow up. Also, the kids growing up in these areas have pier groups that support success, not just at school but in sports, music, art etc.

Sadly those kids from the economically disadvantaged areas do not have these same benefits.

The schools cannot makeup for the disadvantage of being born into a poor household

When you look at who created the PSS you might have a different opinion. Authors who know more about this than most have written about it. The only reason it exists is because the Rothchilds and their ilk wanted worker ants to do the dirty work so they could rake in the cash. People are so stupid they go along with this and think it's a good thing.

Better they be brainwashed in religious schools?

Or at the whim of their parents ideaologies?

Plenty of successful people have come out of public school.

I fully support public education.

More needs to be done -- not less.


They are already IN religious schools being brainwashed! The religion is extreme liberalism. But you can support that no problem.

This is precisely one of the issues needing fixed, the quality of your education should not depend on whether you live in a good part of town or not

Under a voucher-type system, parents would be free to send their students to schools will higher success rates. This would have the net effect of screening out those who don't want to be there (since private schools can simply expel them) and allowing those interested in learning to do so without being held back by disruptive students, class clowns, etc

It also is not right that classes are held to the standard of average, when a good number of those kids are capable of achieving at much higher levels. When you mix in the good with the bad, you end up with a lower average than just that among moderate->high achieving students. The result is better education

I depends greatly on the parents - - no matter where you live.

Culture can be detrimental. In my area, many Mexican parents think they are interfering with the teacher if they get involved. And many don't speak English. There is a big push to educate the parents and get them to understand that they need to be "hands on" with their kid's education.

If parents don't take education seriously, their kids probably won't either (of course there are exceptions).

It is not just the schools/teachers.

It's not a piece of fabric to soldiers who have fought and died for it. You don't have any problem saying thank you to a soldier but you would call the same symbol they salute and wear into battle a piece of fabric?

Granted not everyone approves of nationalism, but by respecting our flag we respect the symbol of our sovereign nation, not just a government. That nation is something that binds each state into a union that has endured a civil war to hold itself together and carries that symbol that we ask our kids to honor and affirm each morning in our public schools. It's not just fabric, but what we are.
