On today’s program we discuss the issued with public schools and their poor job of actually educating children to not only obtain gainful employment but to give them the tools to become free thinkers and nurture a thirst for learning. The main issue in schools today is the one size fits all approach that has been the model from several decades. In addition the centralized control that came from the states and now come down from Washington. We now have No Child Left Behind, and Common Core which seeks to standardize the what and how every child is educated in the country who attends the government schools.
To Illustrate the inevitable outcome of a school system that is controls from the central government I have added this cartoon from Walt Disney.
The issue of Common Core. I have linked the name Common Core to a site that gives a lot of great information on this issue. But, if you missed it the link for Rethinking Schools is right here http://www.rethinkingschools.org/archive/28_02/28_02_karp.shtml
Also here is a video of a Tennessee mother who speaks to her school board and illistrates how confusing and inefficient the system for teaching math is under this system.
Another problem and again it finds it’s origins at the hands of the Federal Government is the forced enrollment of illegal immigrant children into our school systems regardless of the wishes or strain it will cause on the local school district.
This is all thanks to are weak willed Supreme Court, Congress, and we can’t forget Attorney General Eric Holder who stated he will use the Justice Dept. to strictly enforce this Federal dictate.
These subjects and other issues dealing with the failing behind public schools all today on today’s TGB Report.
The TGB Report is a show about freedom and liberty. Focusing on the truth in political and economic news. Tom will not pull punches or compromise his core believes of classical liberalism in the model of Thomas Jefferson in his fight against government and corporate oppression of the American People.
