Education needs serious repair. We are on a free fall compared to the rest of the world. What is a better option? For everyone? For my two cents sometimes old is good whereby school districts bring back Music classes w/instruments, Shop classes and Home Economics as well as basic Consumer Math. Algebra, Calculus, Physics and English Lit should be for those who plan secondary education requiring those courses. Make a HSD worth something again and stop feeding all of these fly by night non-certified for-profit colleges which accomplish nothing for the student except burden them with debt. Go back to partnerships with the telephone company, utility company, etc to pipeline good employees-there was absolutely nothing wrong with that system. We built the middle-class this way. BTW, the average middle school and high school student is so much more tech savvy than their teacher, meaning the student learns little to nothing thanks to a boring curriculum… OK off my soap box.
