With a lighthearted history dear Ann Landers i read with interest your comment the sooner we get Back to basics in our schools the As one who has worked in education for 30 years i share your concern. The problem lies in the philosophy of education today. Instead of stressing academic achievement the idea is to make the student feel Good about a child is allowed to Progress at his own rate which Means he can move ahead if he feels like it. Discipline is at the lowest ebb in the history of the Public school system. Teachers must spend valuable teaching time main Taining order in the classroom. Memorizing facts is considered old hat. Competition and rivalry Are said to be damaging because they create grades Are bad because they can be hard on a child s ego. Our schools Are geared to the non achiever. The result is mediocrity. In our Day we Learned How to compete and Cope with the world. Now students Are encouraged to do their own if they Don t learn anything the world is supposed to Cope with them. Teachers Are no longer the focal Point for education. They have been replaced by a fanatical preoccupation with programs. So Ann what can be done to get schools Back to teaching children May i suggest that parents attend local school Board meetings and demand that their tax dollars be spent to educate their children thanks for the forum.
