BTW, the "lefty progressive" education idea has been around a hell of a lot longer than 30 years. It educated your parents. I assume pretty well.
Yep, and (1) there was no special treatment, (2) if you couldn't keep up you failed, and (3) if you ****ed around and disrupted things you were expelled.
You want your cake and then you want to eat it too. You want equality of result, which is impossible except by screwing the kids who are of average or better intelligence.
You've had 30+ years of "your way" and it's time has expired.
The path suggested, at least to me by this rhetoric, is to eliminate the entire public education system. And there's a lot of that sentiment here. Yes, it's got some real problems. Some real big problems. What's your big idea?
How about this? You poop out a kid, you pay to educate that kid. Period.
You can't or won't? Fine - we'll put you to work breaking rocks and paving roads. That solves two problems at once.
