    Our kids are about the dumbest in the civilized world. The treasonous liberals and their unions want the status quo while Republicans want freedom and vouchers. What more is there to say?

    Yep, so true. Any money poured into education just goes into the union coffers. No money in the world is going to make a teacher be able to actually teach if they don't have it in them. So many kids are not graduating high school and if they do, they are too often ill prepared to face the world. Unless that world is subsidized housing, food stamps and Medicaid.

    Wouldn't a National Recommended Reading List allow for a lot of FREEDOM?

    How could Liberals object to that?

    You might be interested to learn that in New York City approximately 1/3 of the High School students drop out and the vast majority of the 2/3 that do "Graduate" cannot perform even at community college level without remedial education. What pathetic, lowbrow standards are we setting for our children? This is in American's premier city, the cultural and financial center of our nation. It is not a question of money either, the city spends $18,000 per student.

    In Renaissance Florence, Lorenzo Medici set up an educational system that spent generously on scholars and books (under $18,000 per pupil) and produced the greatest artist of the period; Il Magnifico set a standard for excellence and in return we got Michelangelo. In America, we set up a state run Third World educational system that intellectually abuses children, makes them give up, breaks them, fails to teach them and in return we get wards of the state and loyal Democrat Party voters. Our education system is a form of pedophilia where our kids are abused on a daily basis. In the inner city parents cry to let the children to attend Charter school and be given a chance for a full and rewarding life. In response, our educational system tries to cut the exits.

    It has to end, the educational system must be transformed and reformed. We have to stop the intellectual abuse of our kids at the hands of a state run educational system.

    they would make the list mandatory and it would be a list of books THEY deem worthy of children to learn from. So I don't see them objecting, rather hijacking for a white wash.

    Why don't we use the technology to make the educational system obsolete. It is mostly a matter of finding what material is worth the time it takes to read. You have to ignore the teachers and find stuff yourself but if I had gotten good recommendations I would have used them. I wish I had known about The Economist magazine when I was in high school.

    They'd support it only if Chomsky and Zinn were on it.

    "Simplified" education for the right wing is "simply" another name for "Sunday School".

    Every high profile conservative speaker has been the victim of assault on a college campus at one time. What does that tell you about the left? The left is more interested in propaganda than education.
