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.

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.

Ephesians 6:4 New American Standard Bible

4 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

    Thanks for the link, Tom. It is pretty appalling. Now, with CRT and The 1619 Project, it’s absolutely dangerous. School choice is the only thing that’s going to get these activists fired and public schools to change. School choice did help Sweden, forcing their public schools to be better.

    Good news is, there’s at least seven states in the legislative process of banning CRT in schools and universities (some states are banning it in the workplace, too). There’s also five states that have legislation banning The 1619 Project.

    This kind of pushback is the only hope our public schools have.
