We do not need a society that tells us that "bad is good and good is bad." We can see where we're going with that attitude. So let's face it, our country is in big trouble.
Our concerns seem to be with the material aspects of education but neglect the most important elements - the development of character of the individual child.We expect our children to excel academically without providing them with the practical tools (social ethics) they need. It is imperative that our schools should teach social ethics in grades K-12, which would benefit them and society as a whole. When a child learns self-respect, respect for others, acceptable behavior and how to make good personal decisions, then academic excellence will follow.
Let's help our children, our country and ourselves by developing social ethics (common-sense behavior) within ourselves and teaching it in our schools.
Everyone should speak up by contacting his school board today.
