The public school system
Is the idea of the public school system out of date with modern America? I was reading another thread where one person who responded was a school teacher, and spoke of frequent sensorship directed at that poster because of the posters' political views. This allows an agenda to be tought to children as those running the school see fit. It seems to me if you wanted your kids to learn under ruling of propaganda you could send them to a private school that fit the way you wanted your child to be educated. My girlfriends' undergraduate degree is in English Education, and during her last semester she had to spend it teaching 8th grade kids. Her major problem that she mentioned all the time was that parents don't help thier kids out, and the "No Child Left Behind" program is ruining public education. Anybody have any thoughts? I don't have kids so it doesn't effect me, the other thread just got me wondering what you parents think of the public school system.
