I am not responsible for the headline supplied by Newswithviews.

How bad is education in America? It’s getting to some point beyond my verbal resources.

    I think that good old Meathead may be right on one point, there will be a critical mass. However, that critical mass will not trigger something good, it will signal the final failure of America’s education system. There will come a point when kids coming out of school will be so completely mal-informed that they won’t be able to function as adults. Actually, I think that’s already happening with many youngsters, but I expect the saturation to become greater. At some tipping point, the true value of the educational system will be exposed for all to see, and this line of employment will come to its end. Private schools are already gaining ground and I don’t expect this to change.

    Currently, 4.6% of public schools are charter schools and growing all the time. 25% of American schools are private (79% of them religious-affiliated). 3.4% of them are home-schools. As bad as some schools are, there is a movement in the direction of reformation. We need more Christian parents taking their children out of gov’t schools, or better yet, home-school them.
