To: I want the USA back
And an American HS diploma is about as useful as Kleenex-less so, really, because it is much rougher.
Our education system is a disaster. If it were making cars instead of educated adults the vehicles would be fantastically expensive but only a minority of them could attain normal driving speeds. Many basic features would not be offerred while dubious and deleterious features would come standard. Many would be dangerous to operate. A sizeable fraction would spontaneously self-destruct. No one in their right mind would buy one.
Yet we keep sending our kids to known dysfunction-breeding factories, because it is "our civic duty." Or something.

(This isn't your father's America. Stay safe and keep your powder dry.)
I'm an Alabama alumnus and even at the University the political correctness has long been pervasive. I recommended that the Tuscaloosa campus change its name to the University of Alabama at Calcutta (its not there but that name would better reflect its multicultural mission).

(...even more American than a French bikini and a Russian AK-47.)
