Liberals worship at the knee of the public education system which is by standard comparisons only mediocre
The US spends five times more than the second highest nation Japan with only half the performance results in math , reading and science. The US spends 800 billion dollars a year on public education.
Clearly public education is a failure in this country and obviously money is not the problem. Accountability, and political agendas are two of the main problems. What should be done? Public education must be reformed to direct energy and attention to charter schools and away from general public education which is failing badly. Parent choice must become prevalent. Vouchers must be used so that the very best schools with the highest performance ratings are used by students. We must fight hard to place students in the very best educational places and divorce our students from any sacred cows in the public education system which is an incredible and disappointing failure.
