Education has gone to heck on a greasy slide.
If you thought the school system was terrible in 2019, in 2020 the whole thing fell right off a cliff. And 2021 is just the pile at the bottom of the hill. Schools closed due to lockdowns and "distance learning" was an unmitigated disaster as parents struggled to keep their kids in the online "classroom" instead of surfing Tik Tok and YouTube. Let's face it, most of our kids who attend school lost an entire year of their education.
Do not expect this to improve. It's up to us, the parents, grandparents, and concerned adults.
But the problems started before Covid.
Even before this, the curriculum had changed so dramatically as to be unrecognizable. Getting rid of standardized testing so kids don't feel bad, revising history even further, teaching kids to be ashamed of their race, confusing them about sex and gender, and instituting a level of "wokeness" that rivals that of the most politically correct celebrities.
Forget, reading, writing, and 'rithmatic. Let's get those kiddos indoctrinated and villainize any parent who objects.
You need information and a plan to educate your kids in the months ahead. Go here to get that info.
While homeschooling sounds like the perfect answer, there are a number of reasons it doesn't work for certain families and I'm not here to push that on anyone. I have one homeschooled kid and one public-schooled kid and both are successful, competent adults.
I know I keep suggesting you guys sign up for the docuseries Endgame and this is another reason why. There's a detailed segment on this education system (or lack thereof):
