    trouble is he still doesn't recognize the real problem

    yes Juan education is an unqualified failure all too often. and it IS a huge weight on America's prospects. and while unions are a major contributor you continue to ignore the real issue that Bill Cosby highlighted years ago.

    it requires better parents to make better students. no amount of money can be a substitute.

    that bigotry of low expectations permeates this entitlement society and its strangling it little by little every second of every day.

    Better parents is not going to happen. We have always had bad parenting, though it is worse now.

    What is needed is very strict discipline imposed in the schools from K-12 on the students, teachers, and administrators. Without discipline, children do not learn.

    yes we have always had bad parents but at least there were generally two and they worked for a living. and while we've always had a rare few kids who prospered despite parenting, poor schooling and all manner of other impediments that does not excuse society from holding parents to a higher standard. in this case it really is "for the children".
