I have often wondered about the state of education today. It began when my son was in college, and my high school text books (which I still largely have) had much more information and detail than the texts that he was using. But, while a puzzlement, I failed to put into a broader context until today.
The American Thinker has an article that really struck a nerve, and puts the shortcomings of our alleged education system in focus. Now, my understanding is far clearer, and yours will be as well, after you read the article here.
It just lays out the enormity of the task before us. We slept while the “Progressives” took over the most basic function of civil society. Which, by the way, George Will describes as literally dying out.
