"No Child Left Behind"... with our "Safe Schools Czar" roaming the hallowed halls, it really IS "No Child's Behind Left Alone".
This idiotic policy does little more than spend millions on awards for embracing mediocrity, while teaching our kids - our FUTURE! - that it is alright to LET someone else win, to throw the fight, to reach the top without merit. It is raising a generation (no, two or three, now) of Americans who actually believe that being the best is not as important as helping the weaker and less-self-sufficient attain to heights and accolades they could never earn. All the while, these "kinder, gentler" (ring a bell?) generations are not only becoming increasingly unfit to be leaders due to a complete and utter lack of competetive spirit - they are causing a weakening in our socio-political and cultural fabric that is becoming rapidly irreparable, leading to a time when America shall have no leaders because there is nobody in America capable of leading!
If this means bringing wrestling and boxing back to our schools, then so be it. If it means allowing parents to discipline in the home and creating teachers authorized *in loco parentis*, by all means. If America's future survival demands the possibility of pain in the upbringing, and the public whipping post and gallows, to teach the inevitability of consequences for actions, then I say:
NO PRICE TOO HIGH FOR A FREE AMERICA!Comment
