This is not something new, it's been going on for sometime.



FAILING: Majority Of 8th Graders In Public Schools Are Not Proficient In Math, Reading


A new report from the National Assessment of Educational Progress revealed that approximately two-thirds of eighth graders in American public schools were not proficient in reading and math last year.

The report, released by the U.S. Department of Education, revealed that 65% of eighth graders in public schools were not proficient in reading and 67% were not proficient in math. The report also revealed that the results were significantly worse in urban districts. CNS News reports:

This is what happens when the public school system becomes more concerned with indoctrinating students to progressive ideology than with teaching them the essentials.

Unfortunately, conservatives focusing on simply keeping their children out of the system is not going to fix anything. Conservatives need to start working to take back the education system by getting themselves elected to school boards, where they can refocus education on the three R's, and get rid of the indoctrination components.

They also need to hit this from the federal level, ie, give the majority of the power on education back to the states. This may mean cutting off the education funding the feds provide, which will make the states scramble to become more efficient and less wasteful.

To me it is quite simple. MORE PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT. That is the starting point. As long as parents are willing are willing to turn their children over to the govrnment to be raised and educated we will continue to see these abysmal results.

The usual bromides are pointless malarkey.
The Greeks and Romans, managed to create Western Civilization;
yet w/o degrees such as Ph'D's, the poor unfortunates.
Learning is driven by an attitude of the self and encouraged by the family.

Taking control of local school boards can and will alter the level of influence from the federal level. There are many ways a school district can adjust their curriculum to focus on REAL education and still meet federal guidelines.

While the federal government certainly has a large part to play in the current situation, the sickest part of the education system are actually coming from the local levels. This is how we end up with kindergartners being punished for biting their pop tart the wrong way, or students being punished for wearing clothing with pro-conservative messages, or graduates having their microphones shut off mid-speech because they dare to mention God. None of those items stem from, or are even remotely connected with federal guidelines or mandates. They are the result of sick, twisted uber-progs forcing their screwed up views of reality on our children. Get them out off the school boards and replace them with thinking people, and even with federal mandates and influence, things will take a sharp turn toward the better.
