Trifecta: Education and an Open Thread

Here’s a Trifecta on why public education is so bad. I won’t say enjoy because it’s pretty damning.

Let’s discuss this and let’s call this an open thread as well.

  1. I was fortunate that I went to a school where our papers were graded and awarded gold, silver, blue, green and red stars (and the biggest shock, gasp), some papers got no stars at all and the child who submitted it was asked to re-do his or her work to bring it up to a minimal standard. Then I went to a college whose curriculum was based on the “Great Books”. (They’re still great, by the way). The other day, I asked one of the children who attends a public high school very near my home if he had ever read anything by Homer. He responded, “I didn’t know the Simpsons had a book out.” (Sigh). There’s a lot of work to be done.
