    Its because those parents see school as a method of educating thier children, not as a glorified babysitting service. It all starts with the parents, and if they dont care about thier kids educations then no school can fix that.

    Classroom size is a big one.

    Smaller schools would help alot.

    Schools are too big and try to force too many kids to learn in a hostile enviroment.

    Kids are not products they are human beings who need to feel a connection to learn in a meaningful manner.

    The US is losing talent that we desperately need due to our immigration laws. Foreign students come to this country to pursue advanced education. They start businesses and become a vital part of our economy. Then their visa expires and are force to return home to build businesses that compete with us. This makes no sense like most of our immigration laws.

    Otherwise know as "throw money at the problem."

    The hostile environment is often created by the kids themselves, as they know the teachers cannot disipline them, and thier parents will not disipline them. You can have 1 teacher and 1 student, but if the kid is a snot nosed punk he/she isnt going to learn squat.

    Immigrant parents are often far harsher on thier kids, thus they tend to behave better, thus they tend to learn better. The parents also respect the teacher's effort to disipline thier children, where far too many american born parents think the issue is with the teacher, and that "thier little angel" could NEVER be doing the things the teacher said they were doing.
