The American Education system is run for the benefit of the administrators and for the teachers instead of for the students.

The single largest research program ever conducted was funded by the federal government. Is proved that for elementary students there were best ways to teach. The education establishment has supressed the results ever since.

In virtually every jurisdiction that has provided competition for the socialized governmental education establishment better education has been the result. The competition for education dollars and for pupils forces otherwise change resistant schools to compete based on perceived performance. This has improved the quality of education delivered to pupils.

This subject’s moderator has a history of intolerance for abusive posts and posters. Challenge the ideas. Posters are not stupid, only ideas are.
