Public Schools need to start teaching a well rounded list of topics, especially on history. The trend now is for parents that want their children to mature into knowledgeable adults is, home schooling, or sending them to a charter School.
Public schools are paid for by taxes, and the annual price for one student is ridiculous for the amount of knowledge learned. Subjects on the founding of the country should be included in a history class, and how Thanksgiving started to begin with.
A class on religion should be mandatory, how they started, some of their practices, doctrine must be excluded, but comparison would be informative. The ACLU, a communist organization, will file a lawsuit against a public school for mentioning Christianity, but it’s okay to mention the Muslim religion. The school will back down for lack of money, and omit the class.
One way to create the public schools into teaching needed classes is for competition being presented on needed subjects. Vouchers (money) given to a Charter school by the government instead of a public school would create the competition needed.
The public schools that would lose out would cause them to rethink their teaching methods. Now with President Trump in charge it’s hopeful they will. With the new president taking charge (Donald Trump) his ideas for bringing back methods of creating new jobs, manufacturing, the southern border wall being built, sanctuary cities eliminated, etc. it looks good that the public schools will reform.
The Constitution became the strict guidance set of rules for the United States in 1787. It was drafted by the forefathers and then ratified. There has never been any other government starting from scratch, then put together like the Constitution. The United States is the greatest country ever in the history of the world.
To keep it that way it needs a government that’s strong, with the determination of utilizing good practices in its governing. Young children in public schools need to know about the founding of the country, and events like the Constitution and the first Thanksgiving.
