Government Schools Then and Now
This is a wonderful video that seeks to illustrate the precipitous decline in American education. It points out what most of us already know: Schools long ago abdicated their responsibility to teach basics and devolved into leftist propaganda mills. Without a doubt, Johnny may not know how to write, but he sure understands the importance of "tolerance."
As to today's schools' relative effectiveness, consider the following statistic: In 1950, the average 14-year-old had a vocabulary of 25,000 words. What is the figure now? Ten-thousand words.
Tolerance? The government-school system is intolerable.
