That being the case, would you personally support the dismantlement of the U.S. Dept. of Education?
For that matter, would you support the repeal of the bulk of Article 7 of the Texas Constitution?
I'm not asking Rick Perry, by the way. I'm asking you.
When I began school it was in a one room school house (with a 3 holer outhouse). If the teacher wasn't performing or didn't fit with what parents wanted, the school board fired her/him and hired a new teacher.
When I entered 3rd grade, schools had consolidated and classes were taught in twos: first and second; third and fourth; etc. We memorized the times tables, learned math, read, wrote essay questions -- had solid subjects.
By junior high, we'd moved to a new state in an urban setting and the school building was old (like a big boxy jailhouse). It was pretty good and I believe I learned a lot -- just good solid subjects and gym.
On to high school and graduation in the mid-sixties and off to college and a degree.
A lot has happened since then to teaching and schools and institutions of higher education and you can track the rise of socialism in our country and what I see as DECLINE in education and the RISE of anti-American "thought."
Getting out of this has to start somewhere.
It's easy to say dismantle and repeal. I have no idea how that would be done but I'm for what will put power back into the hands of taxpayers, parents - where children are educated so they can lead happy, productive lives.
Now, if I haven't answered something to your liking, or missed giving you some piece of information you wanted, forgive me but I've exhausted my patience with you.
