I note the degradation of the education system in America due to social changes and loss of many programs. So many single parents reducing the positive influence of a “both parent” family. The secondary programs such as music, art, and athletics affect our young people in many ways. I have found that “jocks” of either gender tend to be more confident and capable in their life adventures. Our military suffers because so many rural applicants no longer exist bringing the “shooting and hunting” skills that transfer to a good soldier and save many lives. Teachers and Administrations salaries are up, yet we see fewer results in the educating of our school children. We do see stellar results from home schooled children? hmmmmm. so how about a tax credit so Mom or Dad can afford to stay home and school their children equal to the money we seem to be wasting sending our children to schools that don’t seem to be making a difference? Would we be creating good “citizens” and making a better community that I hear so many espouse to in arguing school issues.
