Many conservatives believe that American public education is in poor shape today because of cultural and social trends, most beginning in the 1960s, which destroyed classroom discipline, the moral basis for education, and a national consensus on what students should learn. Again, there is some truth in this proposition, but ultimately it fails to explain why American students do not possess the communication and computational skills they need today to succeed in college or in the working world.Furthermore, many free-market thinkers believe that applying market competition to the public schools will solve many of America’s educational problems. I’m sympathetic to this argument, but it ignores the role of government policies other than student assignment to schools, which inhibit school success. When government policy continues to impose rigid personnel rules, bureaucracy, regulations, and a mandate to use education to engineer social or political outcomes, a school cannot successfully impart the needed skills, knowledge, and perspective to its students Lastly, the rhetoric of school reform often ignores the crucial role of individual decisions (by students, by parents, by business owners, by educators) in determining educational outcomes. You can lead a horse to water, the old adage goes, but you can’t make him drink. It’s a folksy way of imparting an important individualist truth. Providing students opportunities at school does not guarantee success if students watch television rather than do their homework—and parents let them. By assuming that any set of reform ideas can magically create a well-educated citizenry, we oversell the role of policy-making. Education requires initiative, a trait notoriously difficult to create or impose.
THURSDAY August 22, 2013 10:00pmRemember your upbringing and what public education used to be? I do. The changing culture, regulations and parenting has caused a massive shift in our educational institutions. From elementary to college and beyond in this episode we will examine just how good or bad public education is.
Charlie In The Box! Fridays *9:00pm/Est *8:00pm/Ct *7:00pm/Mt *6:00pm/Pt Live Listen and Chat go to: http://prepperbroadcasting.com/ An education or an indoctrination? That will be the subject of this weeks Charlie in the Box radio show. We send our kids to school five days a week, because we are expecting them to get an education. But if you were to sit down with your child and ask them what they've learned they probably couldn't even tell you because most of it doesn't soak in, and it's not meant too. The educational system today in America is an old ideal that has failed others like it's failing us today. The system isn't new it's the old Soviet way of teaching and I'll tell you a little bit about this on this weeks show. I hope you tune in and have your pen and paper ready so that you can write some of this down and look into it yourself. Tags: Charlie In The Box, Politics,newbies, Prepper Broadcasting

President Obama visited Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) last week to discuss his administration's education agenda.

Why is it important to talk about poverty in education? How do we do that in a way that is respectful and meaningful?
Many times, discussions about education reform intentionally conflate race and class. There are a few reasons for this, including that the federal courts have slowly closed the courthouse doors to claims of race discrimination in education. Courts also have almost completely prohibited voluntary efforts to create racial diversity in schools. As a result, equity proponents have been forced into a difficult position - using socioeconomic status as a proxy for race. This often leaves educators, community members, and others thinking about poverty only in terms of race. Our special guest, Dr. Adriane Williams, will equip listeners with the necessary tools to navigate between the overlapping worlds of race and poverty in education.
I have invited some of my lawyer friends to Know-It-All to talk about the law and education and the work they do every day to ensure that children all over this nation receive a quality education. We'll talk about the school-to-prison pipeline, access to advanced courses, special education, charter schools, and more.
Join me; Shakti Belway, a civil rights attorney and expert; Timothy Riveria of the Advocates for Justice and Education, Inc.; and Stephen Chen, a civil rights attorney for the federal government, for an in-depth look at how the law impacts education.
