If you check out the website on my prior post, they list charter schools in SF after the public high schools. They also list private schools, with SI being the holy grail. Here is a very sobering report on the state of our educational system. www.thenewamerican.com/index.php/culture/education/3030-report-finds-college-students-fail-basic-civics-test
Seems we had to pass a "constitution test" get get into high school back in the day, when the thought was how can you change the system if you don't understand it?
So while kids today are masters at pushing buttons, their world seems very minimal. Sadly, it seems like the school of life has relocated to many parent's garages and offers a limited curriculum. I'm left wondering if we learned more or just different things while growing up?
