Close the Schools

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


I know closing our schools down is a poor solution. Our “government” would not allow it since they use education as a weapon to destroy our children and their future. What do our children receive? Not an education. Let’s face reality, children who graduated from the 8th grade in 1800s had better reading, mathematics and writing skills than today’s high school graduates. They knew the Constitution and had to pass a test based on its standard catechism. Here is the 8th grade test from 1895 in Salina, Kansas.

Why are we paying teacher unions to babysit and indoctrinate our children? The money spent to “educate” our children could be more wisely spent by using former military instructors (drill sergeants as an example) to teach our young. After 8th grade, they can enter the workforce as apprentices, enter trade schools for more technical training or continue in a college preparatory curriculum where a minimum 3.0 GPA would be required.

Imagine if our universities turned our graduates who could actually function and enhance our future with useful degrees. Imagine if our teachers produced students who could read, write and do math.

We received a request at the office from a large school district in North Carolina. They wanted a report for their eight largest auditoriums and their corresponding number of seats. Think illegal aliens and their children.
