I am so afriad of sending my children to public schools. The public school system in this country is slowly getting worse and worse, and kids really are not learning anything anymore. They just learn the basics, they really dont learn the real in depth stuff like they should be learning. They should be learning about EVERYTHING, and what not to repeat in history, and what to look for, but I am seeing kids for history class coloring maps, and that is all they do is color maps! MAPS!! What kind of history is that, coloring a freaking map.
I also read on here that they are no longer teaching cursive. WHY!! Our kids should learn how to write in cursive, just like they should know their ABC's.
Then you see kids on the Free Lunch Program, all the while their parents are collecting 300-1000 dollars in food stamps, WHY... They are already getting free food from the government, why are they getting even more free food from the government. Isnt that considered double dipping.
And now a days, public schools label kids. Public schools are like factories and they know the percentage of kids that will be successful, the kids that will drop out, the kids that will end up in blue collar jobs, and the ones that will end up working at McDonalds, and they focus more on the kids they BELIEVE will do successful, and throw away the kids they think will fail. I mean with this mentality no kids will be set up for success.On top of that a majority public schools do nothing to help with bullying, and usually play favorites and the bully gets away with it and the victim gets blamed!
Finally the teachers unions are running wild with your TAX DOLLARS... All the while they are keeping BAD teachers. Teachers with low test scores, those commited of crimes, etc. All the while you are paying these horrible teachers and funding their protection with YOUR TAX DOLLARS!!
Any one else see something wrong here with the failed public school system and how our government has failed us, or is it just me!?
