You dislike public education? I am intrigued. Would you be willing to share your rationale?

Education is weak and limited in America. The teacher standard is low and so is the quality of education.. Perhaps you didn't know but America's scores are very low in comparison to many other nations.

To quote a teacher named Celia Gaydos
"Where our system fails is in the ever-increasing need for data. Instead of allowing teachers to teach, our government wants us to all-but-follow a script - it won't surprise me in the least when that gets slapped on my desk.
We're all going to sound like every day is HSPA testing day.

These studies also fail to show just how much of poor performance is tied to cultural attitude. I teach in a suburban area, made up of mostly working-class families.
The parents are tired from working all day and expect their children to independently take care of their education themselves. No one is pushing the children, so the message becomes clear: it's not that important.
By the time they're in high school, children are expected to suddenly feel like studying and completing homework for three hours after school all on their own until their parents get home.
And no one checks that they did it. They can lie and say that they did, and it's just accepted.
They themselves are not held accountable, and when we call home, we get the ever-more-popular, "He/She's old enough now that I don't have to supervise him/her." They're still children; they're not just wrinkle-free adults. If parents don't make education important, why should their children?"

There is a massive amount of research available on the internet. -->

Yes, I am aware that my country's education system is badly in need of a revision. You make good points. However, by saying you dislike "public education", I thought you were opposed to the concept of public education itself, not the failings of the current system. My apologies for the misunderstanding. (Unless that is what you meant...?)

It's disappointing that education gets put on such a backburner in the US, among other vital public services. Everyone's up in arms about the recession, but no one seems to want to do anything about it, even when the answer's staring them in the face. :/

You have a fair point. I suppose that the tag is somewhat misleading, my apologies. I do in fact support the idea of free education; just not how it is in America.
