Western Civilization or its equivalent was dropped from our school district's curriculum requirement. Despite much protest and arguments made by those who taught it and those who understand the implications of allowing students to progress into the world without it. Also, it was another determining factor on why my son will not be attending Stanford, despite a generous scholarship offer. He and I both agree he would like a very holistic approach to understanding the world that he has already been exposed in his life. A shame this prestigious university is being influenced by liberal mindsets, but then our own district thinks it is better to have our students who fail the state required exam, another year of U.S. History. Sadly, despite, much protest and our understanding of the students who fail it, they opted this is the better solution, rather than own up to the fact that it is the students themselves and not the curriculum or teacher who is at fault. Granted, some of those teachers do not have the degrees in the field of study, but to satisfy local board expectations and stay off the state of Texas Education bad boy list, we penalize Advanced Placement or college bound students who would benefit from this exposure. Thank god my last will graduate this year from high school.

Good post Maverick.

It's funny that the idea of school is to prepare one for life.

Yet, we don't teach kids the basics of it, such as:

Civic responsibility
Finances
Difficult purchases (home, car, etc.)
Insurance
Basic law

Amazing.

Then again, once you wake up and realize that the ones in charge want a bunch of little worker/consumers, not free-thinkers....then it makes a bit more sense.

Schools have been failing for over 50 years. Much of the blame lands on the parents for allowing the public school system to go down the toilet. Most parents looked for the schools to take over parenting duties and to be babysitters. The things you listed above are vital for all kids to learn, but it is up to the parent (those who care anyway) to teach these life skills to their kids, not the school system.
