Do you ever wonder why the goverment keeps changing education ever 4 or 5 years they change something in reading or math,i never questioned this untill herd 2 people talking one was a highly educated person that i have known for several years and a school teacher,they were having a conversation about the things our children were being tought and they both agreed that the goverment was trying to dumb down our children instead of helping them with their education,i never gave it much thought untill then,but as i have thought about it more i do believe it to be true,i can see that our goverment wants you eating out of their hands,depending on them for everything from health care to food, this is their way of controling you,by raising prices so they can pass out checks and foodstamps,ppl we are being lead to slaughter by our goverment,do you think our children are smarter than they were 40 or 50 years ago,i personally dont think so,i will agree that our children have access to things that the older generation did not have but as far as intellengence the children of to day are not smarter than they were then,we are falling into a trap,you may think that the goverment is helping you,but beware,i truly believe this is our goverments plan.

There must be someting to this 80% of the students graduating in N.Y.City can read,if they cant read they cant do math or science,how would it be possible for them to ever hold any type of job,or function in business.

Can you say "No Child Left Behind." They push kids through whether they learn or not. The lucky ones do learn. And all this positive affirmation crap. Rewarding kids for nothing because it isn't "fair" that some kids get rewards, they should ALL get rewards. They don't make them earn anything. So afraid to hurt some kid's feelings. Well, that does suck, however, we're raising a bunch of kids who will have no work ethic and think they can get something for nothing.

You cannot blame teachers or the schools. You even posted this on an electronic device that you can learn virtually anything on. Use the net to further your education rather than just complain and continue the problem. The greatest minds of all time made the effort to learn rather than just wait to be taught.

They are being dumbed down. Back when we were in school we had to know our multiplication tables, now they have charts they can cheat off of. The are allowed to say tha instead of the. Just totally different than it used to be. I couldn't even help my children with their math because they get mad at me and will say that isn't the way the teacher wants it done. I'm like, wait the answers are the same, my way is easier why tweak with something that works and always has till recently. Its dumb. Anyway this is why I am homeschooling mine now. Public school isn't the same as it used to be. My college math teacher has to reteach her students simple math that are coming in from high school its crazy.

Its too late for you,you should have realized that when you were in school,but you ate all of that crap like,global warming,we are running out of oil,natural gas,coal,and you were tought that the earth could not stand another 40 years,remmber all that horse shat the Democrat teachers were spitting out,now 40 years later we have more oil,natural gas,coal than we can use,we are selling it to canada,the global warming crap has failed so now they are trying global cooling,any way to dumb down our students as well as Americans,if you have any proof of these things happening then prove it but you cant because its not and the Goverment has lied about this so much that no one is goning to believe it anyway.
