Remember the furor back around four months ago when Donald Trump appointed his education secretary? If you will recall, her appointment was the death knell for public education! At least that’s what the liberal establishment would have you believe, as they rallied to protect yet another union that specializes in looking out for those who are feeding at the trough of a completely broken system.
Everyone understands that public education in this country is a total washout. We are graduating the least prepared classes of students in our nations long history, and we demand less of them every single year, while continuing to promote them from grade to grade despite obvious deficits. If we don’t find a way to reverse this trend, other countries will pull further and further ahead as parents and government officials actually hold their systems accountable for providing quality education.
