SChools don't make badd children, Homes do.
If the schools are not teaching what is require by parents, and businesses, they should vote for people that will and stop voting for people because they lie. And teach their own chidlren.
If you're children are not ready for school, why send them? It is a parents job to raise their children, It is the childs job to learn.

This means to spare the staf of knowledge, and you will spoil the child rotten. They will be
evil and stupid.

I don't completely agree with this. You seem to believe that there is no such thing as a bad teacher or a bad school.
I agree that what goes on in the home is the beginning to what could be a good or bad education for a child, but if a teacher is not doing his or her job, has not had the proper training, etc., how is this the parents' fault?
Public schools nowadays are so desperate for teachers that they are hiring almost anyone without proper screening, and damn sure without proper qualifications.
And as far as learning styles, it has been proven time and again that different people (not just children) learn better in different ways. I prefer a verbal and tactical approach, while others may be more tuned in with their auditory learning skills. Every person is different.
