Indeed, public schools have become incredibly degraded in the US. If we’re being honest, they only serve to rot the minds of the youth by filling their heads with all manner of leftist garbage. Teaching about the values of Western civilization will be the last thing these institutions will bother to talk about.
At this juncture, the Right must launch programs to purge public schools of leftist administrators and faculty, while also creating a more competitive education system to ensure that the youth receive quality education.
Because let’s be honest here. The current education system is simply not going to cut it.
