it is really bad! recently 120,000 were polled at high school graduations thruout the country and 70,000 could not even read their diploma!!! until 1930 the u.s. was tops in the world on literacy!! she is now 62d on the illiteracy list of appx 180 nations!!- grades 1-6 show above average - 7-9 average - 10-12 below average!! it is not the students!! it is teacher incompetency and textbook inaccuracies topping the list!! rather than fixing the system the government goes overseas and brings foreign nationals in to bandaid repair a very broken system!!

Education is not necessary. Schools these days are just liberal indoctrination centers. Teach your children at home and keep them away from union teachers!

I think our education system has been dumbed down through multiculturalist instruction and tens of millions of third world pissants. Teachers are forced to teach "feel good" revisionist history and slow down the good students through extra attention to all of the joses, pedros, and tyrones.
