Solutions that don’t break the bank, reinvent the wheel or marginalize our teachers are within our grasp. We could have rigorous classes, safe and disciplined schools and treat teachers like valued colleagues rather than easily replaceable cogs, and we could do so tomorrow if we wanted.

Mother of a Trump supporter blames schools for her son's poor behavior
Oy vey from the I cant't make his up file and RawStory
During a Trump rally on Tuesday, a young boy in the audience began chanting, “Take the b***h down!” in reference to Hillary Clinton.
If you were expecting the boy’s mother to be embarrassed or to apologize… well, you clearly haven’t spent a lot of time hanging around with hardcore Trump supporters.
I wonder if the mother expected public schools to raise her child, teach them right from wrong or to insist they had a moral compass? If only we could.
It's ironic because most veteran teachers have had students like the little bastard scamp mentioned above and when they tried to teach them the difference between right and wrong have gotten excoriated by their parents or when they have asked for help from their parents received none.
This woman like to many of her contemporaries has abdicated her responsibilities and then when her son acts up or in a few years is incapable of getting a job she has will have the nerve to say, if only public schools would have done their jobs. Lady its not "Democratic" schools that have failed, it is you.
There are so many great parents but the sad truth that this lady just proved is schools without help from parents and guardians can only do so much and there will be a certain segment of the population that will blame public schools despite the fact it is them who have failed and why do I think you can find most of them at Trump rallies.
