American public school teachers suck, their administrators suck, their unions suck, they don't earn the money they are paid now and they are nothing more than parasitic leeches. The entire public school system ought to be demolished, it doesn't work, period. There is simply no way that any company that had a 30% failure rate would stay in business. Vouchers for all, let the money follow the kids through the choices of their parents. The vast majority of public school educators could drop dead tomorrow and education in this country would actually improve.
