How the Public School System Crushes Souls
December 12th, 2006 by Steve
When you read about the problems with American education, you usually read a bunch statistics about literacy and dropout rates. But those statistics don’t do the subject justice because the problem with American education is a human story. Every dropout is a human being, every illiterate teenager is an individual, every teen that commits suicide was somebody’s baby, and every kid that’s doing 20 to life is a real breathing person – full of potential.
This is a terrible story. At the root of it, one has to recognize that the country has made a terrible mistake. Education is too important to be left to this governmental abuse.
