The Cost of Abandoning Our Public Schools
As we all know, the political division in our nation has reached the point where we are unable to solve many of our nation’s most serious problems. It is time for us to turn things around and start listening to one another and working together. A well-written article in The Atlantic magazine puts into clear perspective the cost of abandoning an institution, our public schools, that is designed to bind, not divide our citizenry. The article, entitled “Americans Have Given Up on Public Schools. That’s a Mistake,” is lengthy but worth taking the time to read and share with others.
