>>63015364>Public schooling in the US isn't as bad as people say it is
public "school" in the us is the most pathetic excuse in the first world. If someone graduates the average american PS system institution (not gifted programs, catholic or privates or preporatories or special gated schools, I mean the real median schools) and goes to a top-tier college, you know they deserve it. Because most of those median schools will send one person to MIT in a decade, and the rest of those kids fucked away four years learning how to cheat, lie, have sex, do drugs, and shoplift. American media is so ridiculously subversive and blatantly counteracts the school system at every turn. There is 0 "soft power" in the school system and most teachers are just trying not to be humiliated by their teen parent students. The GED is so fucking easy most europeans or east asians could get one in sixth grade. Americans need adult night courses to pass.
If you haven't really seen the state of american schooling, don't talk. It takes good kids and ruins them, black and white.
