I do think it has gone down hill, in teaching the use of individual brains to read, write and do math. I wonder how many tests would be passed, without the use of a computer/adding machine. There are many store clerks that can not make change depend on the cash register to do it.

It seems social ills or programs are stressed and a lot of"how to" on sex, which sure has not helped with teen pregnancy nor single mothers, and the problems that produces.

Asian-American students kill it in public schools because their culture ties education and family honor together.

And you know what, they don't even teach the kids how to harness a pair of plow horses anymore, either.

And in fact the total opposite is true about sex ed.

Of course public ed is in trouble for all kinds of reasons:

*Teachers leaving in droves
* U.S. priorities suck
*Broken families
*Exorbitant testing
*Killing fields
*Betsy DeVos
*Crumbling grounds and buildings
*Lack of funding

Just to name a few and Charter Schools (which are public schools) are also in trouble.
Thanks from tristanrobin and Lyzza
