US Public Schools — Still Terrible (after all these years)

Spending v. Reading at American Public Schools

This blog’s first post was on the terrible state of America’s public schools. Our country, which has by far the best university’s in the world, has a broken and sick system for educating those under 18.

I’m sympathetic to No Child Left Behind, not because it a wise policy, but because it is a step in smashing a system which is far, far worse.
