Don’t join the chorus blaming schools for yet another something. Many who do well and lead our society come from those same schools. To say schools fail students is such a dramatic, inaccurate generalization.
Not all schools are poor institutions. Which schools fail? Why? Which schools do well? Why? No article, slanted statistic, podcast, or survey ever, ever talks at length about parenting and home life. Those who talk negatively about schools use schools as a scapegoat because there is no specific legislation regarding parenting.
Naysayers want schools to work miracles but boldly disregard the root of a child.
I’m for all involved taking their share of responsibility, schools, parents, students, communities, educational policy, etc.
Many people have been inspired, learned critical thinking methods, began creative thinking practices and become life long learners because of school.
