    Bad schools are in good neighborhoods too.

    My high school guidance counselor was the recruiting Commissar for five industrial mills in a gritty river town in Pennsylvania many years ago.

    We took physics, chemistry, Latin, French, advanced math, English composition, typing, drafting, metal working, home economics, other useful stuff…

    Your chances of going to college was next to nil due to no mentoring programs, teacher encouragement or parent interest.

    Just go into the mill, join the union, get married to the chubby girl next door, breed lots more future union workers, buy a house continually engulfed in smoke stack spews, barbecue flank steak and swish it down with Wild Turkey watching the Steelers!

    Has it all changed that much today?

    If parents rise up with challenges to school administrators, why can’t they interrupt the slippery slope to a life of crummy globalist service jobs and poverty for their precious children.

    “Bad schools are in good neighborhoods too.”

    But overall, and proportionally, there are many more bad schools in bad neighborhoods.

    “We took physics, chemistry, Latin, French, advanced math, English composition, typing, drafting, metal working, home economics, other useful stuff…”

    I was forced to study Latin. Could you elaborate on how learning a dead language is “useful”, unless you want to enter the priesthood and work at the Vatican?

    “If parents rise up with challenges to school administrators, why can’t they interrupt the slippery slope to a life of crummy globalist service jobs and poverty for their precious children.”

    Because most US adults are unable to connect the dots and they buy the propoganda. The average US adult is either misinformed or just plain stupid. When teachers are handing out condums to little Johnny at school mom and dad see a direct connection. Teacher hands condum to Johnny. But the average US adult doesn’t understand the connection between the politicians getting bribed by big business and the unions to enact laws which reward the oligarchs and punish the common citizen. It takes extra brain cells to figure that one out.

    The schools in California have deteriorated for 2 primary reasons: The teacher unions and illegal immigration (anchor babies). Some in the media are not scared to go after the teacher unions. But they refuse to address how illegal immigration and anchor babies have caused immense damage to the achievement rates and productivity in our California schools. Shame on the media for not addressing it! 🙁
