I get so very tired of people suggesting that we "do away" with the educational system, offering no recommendations as to how we are to get the masses of Black children to perform academically on par with other children. These people are often the least likely to do anything about the problems they observe in our nation's education system. I understand, fully, people's gripe with the "educational system."
The system isn't perfect but I shudder to think of the alternatives. Umbra, you and I both were able to teach ourselves trigonometry. But the average student cannot. And Rowe is right. Teachers in primary and secondary education are incredibly overworked as it is.
