This past Saturday, on a march for Ron Paul, I fell into a conversation on education. I wasn’t planning on talking about the joke that is public education in America, but as soon as the words ‘No Child Left Behind’ were uttered I went off. You don’t have to be a Ron Paul supporter to recognize the failure of the public school system. Enjoy my rant.
The only correction that needs to be made is that one half of all students do not need to take at least one remedial course in order to take introductory courses in college. It is “only” one-third of all students who need to take remedial courses.
