Stupid in America
Granted, this video was produced March 4, 2007 but so much of it is still relevant to today, probably more so. I cringe when a parent tells me their school is different and isn't like this. Maybe it's time to ask the children what the schools are really like. Is there hope for these students? This was 2007 and many of these students have already graduated...maybe. What sort of parents will they make? Will they simply turn around and place their own children into these same schools within a few years? Is it any wonder homeschooling is growing in such enormous leaps?
I hate to keep harping on how bad public schools are in this country but many parents still aren't convinced their child would be better off out of them. What I don't understand is why people keep voting to pass school budgets when the money doesn't make any difference. Let's face it, we all know the reason why American public schools are failing...it's the stranglehold the teacher's union has on them!
