the only ones that complain, is the ones that do nothing for their children. if your not satisfied with the education system do something about it. blame, blame , blame, to much homework, to much this, to much that. MAYBE for once the parent should to a roll in the lives of their children. if your waiting on someone to do it for you, its going to be a long wait.
This is not altogether true. Many parents take an active role in their children's education. And,at same time see that things at the school level need improved. On the other hand, a lot of what you say does hold true today. just a few years ago, most students entering kindergarten for the first time had already been taught to count, print their name, and ABCs. Today, it is the rare student that starts school already knowing this. Those students are usually the ones who have parents not interested in education.
I guess I do agree with most of what you say, but the parents that do right need to be acknowledged.IMO

No one needs a pat on the back, its a parents responsibility to do so. If a parent cares for their child ,they should make sure they have every chance to florish in life.

Most schools in Kentucky, not all, but most, teach what's on(the test). They make sure these students get high marks on the school testing so that the schools and teachers will get more money and also so the school systems will look good in the press, but the truth is the vast majority of students they are turning out all across Kentucky are as dumb as rocks. It's not the students fault and really not the teachers fault. It's the system they are made to conform to.

Must be a national problem. KY ranks 17th in the country in rankings of how states' primary education systems are preparing students for careers in engineering. 17 out of 50 states(57 according to Obama)is not to bad for a bunch backwoods hillbillys.

No it's not bad to be 17th in the country but the trouble is public schools are beyond bad in all fifty states.(57 according to the king of spades). It's not the teachers fault and it's certainly not the students fault, it's the product of a sick society.

I'm really offended that you all are making fun of my botox and fillers, hair extensions, or boob job. If I didn't work hard on my appearance, do you think I would have made it as far as I have? You didn't really think I made it on brains, did you?

Maybe it is time for teacher's to start earning there pay.Like working a full year like everybody else has to.They get paid extra for teaching summer school,that should be in there regular pay.Instead of getting off at 3 let them clean there room's and clean the bathroom's then leave at 5 o'clock. MAKE THEM EARN THERE SALARY. AND IF THEY DON'T LIKE CLEANING THEY COULD HELP STUDENT'S THAT ARE HAVING PROBLEM'S WITH THERE GRADE'S TILL 5.

Since the states adopted the Common Core State Standard Curriculum. Some teachers have elected to continue teaching cursive writing, but it is not required. Here is a link that tells more about this:

Thx for the link Misty. That was news to me and I think that decision is dumb.

I may get blasted for this and that's fine but, has anyone noticed the countries that have a socialized educational system produce students smarter than ours? Has anyone noticed a heckuva lot of our technical jobs are overseas and those employers have zero problems finding employee's? Doesn't that make anyone sit back and go hmmmm.

It seems it's difficult for us to even produce a remarkable High School graduate. Hmmm.

Imho, this country is cutting it's own throat over a word. Socialism. No, this country should not be entirely socialized. We need capitalism to remain competitive. But! We should consider socializing area's that will allow us to become even more competitive. Education is one of them.

We have all had teachers so boring very few of us if any produced remarkable grades. The teacher may know their stuff but being interesting enough to relay the info was not their forte'. That's why I made mention that their isn't much in the way of teaching a person how to teach.

I think this country is so hung up on Capitalism and considers Socialism so much of a demon that we are cutting our own throats by refusing to even so much as compromise.

A healthy, educated citizenry can only be a benefit. Wouldn't it be worth the benefit to swallow a modicum of pride?

If we support one another in becoming and remaining healthy and educated we are only benefiting ourselves as a whole.

Show one country that is thriving on Socialism. I will show 2 that has failed. The standards of living are way below that of any country that has an open market. I dont see any one trying to move to China to better theirself.

Paintsville Ind. and Johnson Co. is in the top half of the state rankings K-12. KY is ranked 14th in the NATION in overall grades and scores. Maybe its time to stop blaming others and take care of your own.

Ok. Canada has both socialized medicine as well as non-profit higher education.

Higher education in France is also funded by the State.

In Belgium higher education is funded by the communities.

Belgium's educational system ranks #5 in the world.
Canada ranks #17.
France #23.
The U.S.#24.

I didn't say the U.S. should become a socialist Nation. I said the U.S. should consider compromising and socializing certain elements so they can be turned to our advantage. Two of those elements should be health and higher education.

Look around at our own situation now. Are we thriving on Capitalism?

Paintsville Elementary ranks 492nd out of 689 KY public elementary schools. NOT GOOD, sorry! They are ranking worse than CES. I guess they haven't been getting copies of the test either. They've gone downhill since 2008.

thats why Canada has a waiting list for medical procedures....

Canada's health care system is the subject of much political controversy and debate in the country. Some question the efficiencies of the current system to deliver treatments in a timely fashion, and advocate adopting a private system similar to the United States.
