15 Ideas That Really, Really Screwed Public Education Up

15 Ideas That Really, Really Screwed Public Education Up:

 "There is little need to rehash the argument that public education–in the United States anyway–is utterly broken. For every student that “gets straight As and loves school” there is another is hopelessly lost, and five more than merely endure it. And that’s generously assuming that “straight As” are an indication of having their personalized learning needs met.

So I thought it might be interesting to see how we got to this point–a system that spends billions of dollars a year to offer–at best–an incredibly mediocre service. Note that this, as with almost all writing or thinking of any kind, is just an opinion, and is not an attack at all on any of the human beings who give their all every day to make it all work. I teach, my wife teaches, and most of your writers on staff here teach."
