Home school, private school, or make yourself a constant presence in your child's class and school. Read the texts, read the handouts, listen to your children's stories about nonsense in their classrooms. If possible, find schools that teach the "classical curriculum"--often private religious academies--go for scholarships and vouchers. Ed. today needs to be returned to private business as it was until c. 100 years ago. Bds. of Ed should be bds. of trustees, real estate taxes should be kept by families and spent on tuition themselves, and sports should be private as they are in Europe.

But this is fiddlesticks compared to what the federal government is doing to eliminate American children's core knowledge base in English, language arts and history.

Thanks to the "Common Core" regime, funded with President Obama's stimulus dollars and bolstered by duped Republican governors and business groups, deconstructionism...
