Reader comment on item: Spreading Islam in American Public Schools

Submitted by Marty L (United States), Mar 7, 2005 at 22:36

It has been painfully obvious for some time that public education in America has become dominated by fools and idiots. This is but one more example. It's no wonder we can't compete academically with other countries if we spend valuable classroom time on stuff like this. And I'm sure there is plenty more such garbage to be discovered. Our children are being short changed.

The system is so corrupt that it is beyond fixing and requires revolutionary change. This is difficult to achieve in the face of powerful interest groups like the teachers union. If parents had the power to send their kids to schools that actually teach, schools would have to focus on what they are really supposed to be doing, like running a successful institution, satisfying their customers. This lunacy would stop!
