Just how bad are things in the public schools. Well, in some places the public schools are not so good, and some think they are pretty bad.
It is a good thing to look around the country and see what others think. In My Father’s House | “…that where I am you may be also.” Jn.14:3 (wordpress.com) is a blog written by a pastor. Pastor Mel Wild leads Cornerstone Church – Home (thatchurchonthehill.com). Pastor Wild’s blog generally focuses on preaching the Gospel, but he has written posts that address critical political issues. Here are two that talk about the state of our public schools.

- How Public Schools Dumb Down Our Children…and Worse | In My Father’s House (wordpress.com)
I took some time to read and look up some of the claims in these posts. For example in the second post, Alex Newman observed that 50 percent of Americans are functionally illiterate. I thought that a bit exaggerated. So, I looked it up, The Average American Reader Needs You to Write (Even More) Clearly – Digital.gov.
Really don’t want to believe the worst, but given what has been going on here of late …..
God requires parents to instruct their children in the Christian faith. We need them to learn how to read the Bible for their sakes. In the public schools there is a good chance they won’t even learn how to read properly.
