American Education

I didn’t need to see this to know that American education is a joke. Of course I don’t mean to malign the many competent and dedicated teachers in American schools, but the system itself is in a sorry state. Just take a look at some of the many personal websites put up by Americans, and slog through a syntax-challenged mass of misspellings and sometimes incomprehensible verbiage. Or check out news stories on comparisons of scholastic achievement by students in industrialized countries.

And now we have Dubya’s “No Child Left Behind,” which ironically means every child left behind — except the children of the rich, of course. The fact that schools are begging for money is testament to the low importance accorded to education by the US government.
