"IN recent years, we’ve been treated to reams of op-ed articles about how we need better teachers in our public schools and, if only the teachers’ unions would go away, our kids would score like Singapore’s on the big international tests. There’s no question that a great teacher can make a huge difference in a student’s achievement, and we need to recruit, train and reward more such teachers.

It is true that education is the responsibility of the parent, period. Great "observation." Extry profound.

My take is that discipline in the classroom of the public school is gone ... it's over ... and academic achievement is just going to get worse. The gap between public and private schools has never been wider and it won't be shrinking anytime soon.

Not to mention the leftist brainwashing the kids undergo each and every day.
