You clearly don't know the Constitution as well as you pretend, if you think all those thing are unconstitutional.

If ignorance is bliss, why are conservatives so hateful?
""Full funding for undergraduate studies." Yeah, and pretty soon our colleges will be in just as bad a shape as our high schools. Ever heard of grade inflation? " That's what #4 is for.
"but the problem, at bottom, is race. " You are absolutely and utterly wrong. It has nothing to do with race, whatsoever! It has everything to do with CULTURE. This country has lots of different cultures, most good, but many not. If we want a better country we should strive to improve the ones that aren't, and since culture is always in flux, this isn't impossible. It has nothing to do with race, and moreover I don't see any good coming from claiming that it is.
without passing the test. We are spending hundreds of billions of dollars to educate students, and it basically counts for nothing if prospective employers cannot be assured of basic proficiency from various levels of education.
....The inequality of funding between urban and rural, or upscale vs. low-rent areas is atrocious. Having a school in the wealthy suberbs with football stadiums, Olympic sized pools, when twenty miles away students in poor schools are sharing textbooks is shameful. 3. Change from a K-12 format to a K-12 + 4 format. Full funding for undergraduate studies. Quite simply, our students need to learn more now, then they did 100 years ago to be competitive in what is now a global marketplace. If we want to be the most innovative country in the world, we need the best educated students. 4. Standardized testing in order to pass on to further levels of study. You don't go into high school without passing the test, and you don't graduate....
Rather than complain about this obvious propaganda article, I'm going to suggest a few things that I think would improve our educational system, I had a long discussion on this a few days ago with my mom, who taught middle and high school for twenty years before retiring. (and before you go dissing my mom, I would point out she's been a staunch conservative for years.) 1. Eliminate summer breaks. Summer breaks are a legacy of our past, from a time when field help was needed during the growing season. Obviously we don't need them anymore. That long of a break tends to set students back and often they forget and have to relearn prior curricula. 2. Fund ALL schools through State and Federal level taxes, rather than local property taxes..
Speaking of grammar; "oops, they did say mathmatics, grammar, etc.... the CORE academics. wanna try again " Would you like to try again?.
