I've been trying to come up with ideas...other than just poor public schools.

--More moms in the workplace than at home (I am a woman and would LOVE to be at home, but I work to help support my family.)
--Easier access to a variety of illegal drugs (well, legal prescription drugs for that matter)
--Technologies that are keeping kids up at all hours if the night

What else?

There is not one easy answer. We are failing our kids (as a nation) on many levels...

Children are not encouraged to read anymore because adults don't set the example of reading. Trying to get parents to read a simple one page newsletter is a challenge. This is why magazines and local and national papers are closing their doors - no one reads! Unless it comes on their TV, radio or computer - they remain clueless. It is truly sad that a vital part of any education is so poorly valued.

Everyone quick tune to CNBC as I do, they tell the absolute truth about everything!

Nothing is exagerated to lean to the left at all!

This is the best fair reporting news agency left today!

It's important that the Gilmer students, parents and taxpayers see firsthand, the deceptive tactics that are used to keep the public education gravy train rolling at the expense of the students.
