Budig a professional educator,a member of the current administrative view of education which he tells us is failing. I give him credit for acknowledging the influence. The Federal Gov pays only 8% of educating 55 million US students and yet bully the systems with PC issues constantly over textbooks, inclusion, what can be taught what cannot. What ravages American schools is the idea that it must function to the lowest level and not to the achievers. Schools are packed full of progressive social concepts, and students who don't want to be there and disrupt school or make it a fearful place must be catered too. Learning disabled must be "mainstreamed" to prevent labeling or stigma. So each day a teacher walks into a classroom with kids who want to learn and will not get that chance, while the teacher must teach down to those who don't want to learn and those who cannot learn in that system. It cannot work. Surprised?
