The best public school education ever

I just want to say, while I think the public schooling system must be destroyed, I had the best public school education the world has ever provided. Small town, small classes, basic education, late 1950s-early 1960's, middle America. When we pledged allegiance to one nation under God, we knew why. Totally Leave it to Beaver. I still live on what I learned in grade school, from math to civics. And Mom, of course, with the 'did you do your homework' and flashcards.

That is a model for education. Just not public schools, not anymore, never again. The current system amply demonstrates why not.
