Today’s read is from Emily Griffin in The Patriot Post. Here’s an excerpt:
American students perform poorly on the nation’s report card. Overall, the majority of our students in public school don’t even meet “below basic” standards.
American public education has been in sharp decline for decades, but as this data clearly shows, our current batch of students are in a free fall.
The most nefarious reason of all is the emphasis on nonessential education — the eduactivism element that is hurting and further convoluting our children’s learning. Our children can’t read, write, or do math, but by all means let’s teach them about gender pronouns, critical race theory, and how to have safe sex. This is not at all the intended role of public schools, and yet in this current era, it is sometimes the primary emphasis.
There is no easy solution to this problem, but there are some ways parents can take back the reins and help give their children a fighting chance.
