I'll just give you 1 example of refuting the "We can't afford it" argument - 1 band director teaching 75 students, get rid of him and hire 3 teachers to teach 25 students each, where is the cost savings? Band and choir teachers are the greatest bargain in Education. OK, getting off the soapbox now.
So true! And talk about teaching skills necessary for success! Team work, commitment, conflict resolution, leadership, goal setting, and time+effort+focus=achievement. And NO ONE sits on a bench!

My wife was a teacher and retired early because of "teach to the test" changes in the original cirriculum.

Last evening our daughter-in-law, who is a playground assistant at the elementary school, was visiting and I asked about the music program at our school. It has been discontinued there also, along with a number of other programs because of budget constrictions.

At this point I'm confused. If we spend more money per student than most other countries, where is the money being spent? Also, if we also do one of the worst jobs educating our students, should changes be made? Is the problem teacher unions? If not, what?

I'm all for returning to sanity and bringing some of the useful programs back. Not everyone goes to college.

Steve

College may soon become an entitlement or a "right", everyone will go whether they need /use it or not. There are many occupations that do not need a college education.
Multiply the number of students attending, all at government expense and watch what little quality exists now plummet, as the cost increases tremendously.

If everyone has a college education, there won't be anyone left to start new businesses.

I don't hear any talk about dumping football or basketball.

Of course not. They produce positive revenue streams.
