When I first taught, it was in 1967-68 school year in Lexington, Kentucky when the courts ordered integration by closing the black high school and sending the kids to the richer white high school.The black kids missed thier own school becasue they had their own football heros and homecoming queens and top students and clubs. Now they were the "new kids" in a very large school with its own football heros, homecoming queens and top students and clubs. But after much difficulty, they finally achieved integration. Then the government here in ultra-liberal California state colleges decided there should be separate colege dorms and subjects for blacks. Sigh....
For many girls, the old ways of getting married and having children right out of high school was actually easier than now. When she was a young mother, she and her man and child were more likely to be helped by extended family, and often she might have more energy. By the time she was pushing 40 she could join the work force or persue other interests since her children were raised. An early marriage often meant her man would have been helped establish himself in work early and be ready to oversee when he was also about 40. This worked well for many families.
I am a credentialed teacher who homeschooled, One of my sons had natural gifts in building, construction, mechanics, and a unique ability to philosophize combining subjects; but he will always find language skills more difficult than his siblings. He did ok in college but dropped out as an upperclassman because of the money he made in construction in summers. He might have been labeled as a failing student by test results, but is not a failure in real life.
A man picked up and threw a bed frame at my pregnant belly in front of my young children. I got a restrainign order but when the Judge asked if I wanted to file assault charges I decided not to based on information that I would have to "prove" the child born after the attach was "damaged" (that child would then have to feel damaged). That man became a credentialed teacher and taught young people for years, protected by the teacher's union.
Students can and do learn online and in practice (jobs). We could have a system in which there would be neighborhood learning centers where younger students check in and out which could have helpers monitor them when a family member was unavailable. Nearby learning centers could sponsor events together. Otherwise students could be encouraged to teach themselves and start or workin family businesses. Why not?

I was in the Haight Ashbury of San francisco in the 1960s and the vans would come in and teh driver would ask who wants to work in the fields today. Hippies were farm workers and that work when you want or need and share rent as a household were the new wonderful life, so free. Hippies were the ones disinfranchised when the vans and drivers became all Latino and would no longer hire day labor that was American English speaking...and would only hire their own Mexican Spanish speaking.

I live with my 7 kids and 14 grandkids in a "Latino neighborhoood" with many illegal immigrants. The idea that the kids of illegals shouldn't be punished is absurd. In my neighborhood in a Sanctuary City, the kids of illegals usually hate Americans and America.

We in Cali have so many illegals to support!! When we were hippies in the Haight Ashbury in the Summer of Love, the van pulled up and hippies entered to go to pick crops for a day. That money and house shares were the 2 things that hippies relied on for a new independent life style for the young in which the individual could work as little or much as needed. That was the freedom we had. Then in the 1980s, the middle men (those in the vans who hired day workers to pick crops) became racists against anyone who was not Latino and only Spanish-speaking were hired. I think it was Chavez, but anyway, no longer could American citizerns work as day laborers picking cros. End of hippies. End of freedom for American youth.

5 Wacky Things Liberal Feminists Believe

the Gullgubber artifacts of Ancient Scandinavia show that males and females were different but equal for thousands of years at least there. It is an amazing thing that love between the genders can lead to hugging and kissing and then in an act that can be loving tiny specks of fluid can find their way to each other and the start of a third person can happen. Two people can become three people. This magic cannot happen any other way. When love and understanding between one gender and the Other is the cause, the two become three is majic.
The Left teaches that all white Americans are racists. White Americans are the majority of voters. Therefore anything the voters vote for is racist. Therefore, since we have a black President, anything he does cannot be stopped because if the voters vote against his take over their vote is just racism.
