  1. Money isn’t the problem. Incompetent Teachers are part of the problem. Modern “teaching” methods that don’t work are part of the problem. Expanding schools beyond Reading, Writing and Arithmetic is part of the problem. Parents who arn’t involved in their Childrens lives is part of the problem. Quite frankly, Public Education is broken. Students don’t need anymore than 3-4 hours per day of instruction in the 3 r’s. Children need to dedicate themselves to study, and turn off the TV. It’s that simple. Parents can direct any additional activities/lessons.
