The Problem With U.S. Public Education System
The hipster again has another nice post: "A Liberal Education vs. Conservative Education"
This gives me the opportunity to roll out one of my favorite old saws that will likely lead to my untimely death, when Ms. Angel-Mo plants a hammer in my head after having heard it for the 1,843rd time:
"The problem with the U.S. public education system is that it is run by education majors."
I am a staunch believer in the concept and goals of the classic liberal education, I just don't know if there are enough education majors capable of delivering such an education to our children.
