Education Problem?

I really don’t think the US has a “education problem”. What we have is a parenting problem. Most parents are no longer willing to raise their own children anymore. We don’t want to devote that time to their children. We aren’t willing to see our children as fully formed independent people, just something to control like someone has controlled us. Most of us aren’t even willing to ourselves that way; as full humans responsible for our own choices.

If we all focused on raising our children instead of educating them, the community would be much better off. If you love them, you’re there for them, you support them, and listen to them, they will educate themselves.
