Hi Catherine,
    The dumbing down, teaching to the slowest child, the redundant reviews, political correctness, failure to teach advanced kids in advanced classes because of fear of accusations of racism, failure of administrators and teachers to attend meetings with parents when scheduled, the lack of discipline. All of these
things are why I teach my 14 yr old son at home using computer programs.

Having seen some of the texts that are now used in the public schools I have some empathy for kids who simply tune out and fail to get an education. Our whole system of education now seems to be about dis-education in the name of "political correctness." Blech.
