When I Think Back On All The Crap I Learned

In high school. Were Simon and Garfunkel ever considered threats to public education? It’s a wonder they could think at all. A new National Governor’s Association Survey found most American high school kids think their schooling is a complete joke, and that a majority of kids who plan to bolt before graduation would do so because they were “not learning anything” or “I hate my school.” Interesting quote from the National Education Association’s Barbara Kapinus in this NY Times story on the survey. She seems to find it fascinating that what real live kids are saying seems to be in line with what critics have been saying for some time. Those rascals!
