Now, personally I wouldn't enroll my grandchildren in a school that teaches such crap. That could be why I pay for their private schooling.

(I'm inferring here....I doubt you think any such thing.)
In addition to the limits on private school use of taxpayer money that existed when I was a child, there was also a state-wide exam, per subject, per year which a student had to pass in order to receive a Regent's diploma. Students who failed or didn't take the required courses could still get a diploma, but as a rule you couldn't get into college without the Regent's one.
I understand that public education is terrible and something must be done, but it seems to me we are throwing the baby out with the bathwater if we make no effort to restrict the use of public funds.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius

I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
