Welp, according to cafemom statistics, Ppl. Are content being sahm's on PA...and according to the "Race" statistic floating around ... 0% of cafemom members in this group are asian

Maybe they're busy being productive and not "rate me" or letting strangers determine thier fetal fate

 I read an article a few days ago about how in China they only give the "smart kids" air conditioning. Hmmm...

People in this country don't value education as much as they do in many other countries. It is more important for kids here to wear designer clothes and shoes than to achieve educationally. Some of the statistics are a bit skewed as well. In many countries only the top % of kids take the tests they are using for comparison while in the US it is based on total population usually. Just some information I have learned when studying the educational systems of other countries.

No child left behind left most of them behind. Teachers can't teach to learn anymore, it's all about numbers on standardized tests, and there are many who feel entitled...

When people realize other countries only teat their college bound students, and america tests every single student they will have a better understanding.

Schools need to stop addressing social issues and parenting our children and focusing on a core curriculum instead of sports and ethics.  Parents need to step up and start parenting instead of simply giving birth and allowing children to raise themselves.
