The problems of education is multifold including the breakdown of the family unit. Bad teachers are allowed to teach and good teachers realizing their potential opt out for better paying employment.<quoted text>
You are slow, Catcher.
As public schools got more secular they also turned out more mediocre product.
Buck would probably agree.
You didn't see that coming, huh?
Lovely example of your philosophy and activism.
It may be a little different in each town in America. But in my little town the school district is ran by Coaches. The emphasis is not on academics but athletics.
We all know football will only take a student so far down the field. Later in life the students are going to realize they were short changed when they try to compete for jobs.
The way around all this mess is good private schools that yield a better product. Im fortunate that all my grandchildren attend private schools. Where the emphasis is not on sports but academics.
I like kid sports and my grandkids play sports in the summer time when school is out. Its a lot of fun but academics is what is going to carry them through life.
