Everyday in May: Rant About Schools
The schools are teaching children less and less of what they need to know to actually get by in life, all while spending more money per child. That is because the money goes to special interests and bureaucrats who would rather use the money for themselves, for getting reelected, and to ensure that children learn whatever propaganda they want them to learn rather than the things they actually need to know in order to survive and be successful in the world.
I'm afraid that the world is going to fall apart once these kids take it over. It is already happening. There are young adults graduating from high school, and even college, who have no idea how to wash their own cars, cook a meal, or even use a microwave. Don't even get me started on what they know about politics, the economy, or what their congresspeople are doing, what they believe in, or even who they are. Many of them don't even know who the vice president is. I just hope that some of these young people will wake up at some point once they actually find real jobs (if that ever happens).
This is not about either political party. Both parties are guilty of ruining schools. Perhaps the problem to begin with is political parties. If politics were about solving problems rather than towing party lines, maybe we could -- guess what?! -- solve some problems!!
