S&F. For those stating that "only those with money could get an education for their kids" - do you really think most of these kids are getting an
education? We have adults that can't read, that went through these schools. People don't know anything about the system of government we use, or
where major countries are located on a globe, or even how to construct a basic sentence. I have seen my younger set (9-12) do better locating
countries on a globe than what I have seen high school kids do in videos. There is something wrong there.....and it isn't with mine! The system
isn't teaching a lot of kids. More propaganda is being pushed than actual education. They want to control what the kids eat, how they think, how
they dress, even their home lives. They spy on kids with school-issued computers, teachers fight with kids, school bus drivers and aids attack kids,
kids attack each other, we have shootings.....what, exactly, is there worth preserving? Now I KNOW some fine teachers. I have family and friends
that teach. I have also seen some really BAD teachers, and they keep on teaching as well. It can be near impossible to get rid of the bad ones.
Even teachers that molest have been known to be moved, NOT reported, NOT fired, and NOT prevented from teaching elsewhere. Many problems, and there
seem to be no real solutions.
Clearly, the only good solution is to toss out the system, and try something else.
