    "A native American who cannot read or write is
    as rare an appearance... as a comet or an earthquake." -John Adams


    TBN has a new piece from American Heritage/Wall Builders , ...it's a must see.
    David Barton shows examples of mandatory school requirements from the past.
    in many cases typical materiel from the 4th grade is now considered "higher learning"

    a common age for entering college was 13 years old.
    Barton shows examples of early Americans holding important offices and making amazing accomplishments from the ages of 11-17.


    in 40 short years the Socialist "Progressives" took this country from #1 in education to #68



    check TBN for programs featuring David Barton.

    You know that the countries with better education systems then ours are more "socialist" and "progressive" than we are, right?

    And what has it got those countries?
    They are more broke then we are.
    38 billion a year to the Dept. of Ed. here may be a bargain to achieve a current 1 out of 3 dropout rate from high school.
    So.............keep braggin'................:clap2:.
