CHILDREN HAVE LOST HOPE. Our children have lost hope in the future because of the turmoil this country is in. They dont see a future at the end of their years of education. Why should they put for an effort, time and money to prepare for a job when there are no jobs. Children are seeing their parent losing their jobs that spent years in school for and they are losing hope for any future for them after graduation college. Where is the incentive for children to learn? Some have made up their minds before high school that years of education is a waste of time and money when jobs will not be there for them and the only jobs that will be available for them is flipping hamburgers because Happy Meals will always sell when their math and science will not. Teachers are losing their jobs and children at one time wanted to be teachers. Students with teaching credentials are leaving the country to find jobs. The reason children are failing in school is because they do not see a future for them in learning and preparing for the future. They know there are no jobs because their parent are losing theirs. I know a half dozen children that have graduated college and cannot find jobs in their field. They were once told they cannot find a jobs if they do not have a college education. 8 million illegal aliens are working and they do not have a college degree. Children have lost hope and we dont have any to offer them.
