We would have to get rid of the teachers unions first. They are the biggest obstacle to any kind of meaningful change. I had one son in public school years ago and the garbage that passed for learning was not to be believed. When I politely talked to the teacher, she said there was "nothing she could do" to change the curriculum. The "principle" had the same sorry story. My son left the public education system and I sent him to a private school. It meant a lot of sacrifice, but was well worth it to get him out of the clutches of re-education system and provide him with an objective learning enviroment.
