My kids are now 20 and 24. If I were having children now, I would home school them. Thank G-d my kids got most of the old fashioned education. I saw disturbing trends though. One that bothered me was in Literature. AP Literature is now what used to be expected from ALL students. The books that the kids read were awful. Books that turn boys off. No male heroes, nothing to keep a 16 year old boy interested and motivated to read. Rape, moral relativism, and progressive ideas were the subjects of the books. Kids today don't have the patience or skills to read the classics; they are too complex for the average student today. Reading the comments here from teachers proving the point of this article is cause for great concern.
