This issue has been discussed before, but not at a national level and it should require more attention from those who are or were being educated in the year 2001 through present times.
Our national government, specifically the Department of Education, was established to combat the education systems across the globe to achieve greater technological heights mainly in the areas of Mathematics, Science, and Literature, forcing public schools to meet federal standards while failing state standards. Everything single state has dumb down their standards to be equal to federal levels, thus creating an inappropriate intrusion on state and local education systems.
Teachers are forced to help every child in the classroom succeed where children refuse to learn. My argument is, It is not the Educators fault if a child refuses to learn about the subjects taught, Education of children should be the responsibility of Local communities individually, and our education system should be based on the needs of our national community, not a global competition to determine who is intelligent.
I ask anyone to provide an explanantion, why this situation is being ignored? and why does our society care for those of others in an educational manner when we should focus on our own?
