There is education and then there is education. Some of it is fine to be learned in schools and some not.
Kids today are not showing up at the schoolhouse door with the right preparation. I'm not talking about knowing your colors or the alphabet or being able to count to ten. The preparation I am talking about is the simple knowledge of how to behave in public. How to mind your manners. How to respect others especially the adults in charge.
There are a number of reasons why our nation's schools are in the dumpster but if we downplay the abdication of parents from their basic duties of raising well behaved children, we are lying to ourselves.
