There are few in this country who doubt we are in a crisis when it comes to public education. Our public schools are instilling in our young a lack of responsibility. Worse, they are training them to believe they can do almost anything – or not do it – without facing consequences. Is it any wonder when those same students get to college, they have little to no concept of what is expected of them as students or adults? Not that our higher education system helps much along the way. Somewhere, the buck has to stop and, in this case, it stops with each of us as taxpayers.
