Today as more and more parents pull their kids out of physically dangerous and politically-correct educational environments, there is a simple reason for this activity that goes to the root of how we run our country. It's that we believe in allowing the market to decide the value of a product. And so it is, as these parents speak volumes about their dissatisfaction in how their children are being taught and the lack of values that are found in the public schools.

Ever since the ACLU entered the schools in the mid-1970s over the length of hair, our schools have never been the same. Their greatest success was when they had been allowed to reflect the local flavor of each community they were located in. Now school administrators, taught by biased and ultraliberal universities, bring a national secular agenda to our local schools of cleansing and political correctness.

Below is a story called Teaching Math, that while funny, may instead anger you. It describes perfectly the decline of our education system through the interference of the ACLU, other liberal organizations, and the influence of nutty university training of teachers and administrators.



Last week, I purchased a burger for $1.58. The counter girl took my $2, and I was digging for my change when I pulled 8 cents from my pocket and gave it to her.

She stood there, holding the nickel and 3 pennies, while looking at the screen on her register. I sensed her discomfort and tried to tell her to just give me two quarters, but she hailed the manager for help. While he tried to explain the transaction to her, she stood there and cried.

Why do I tell you this?

Please read in a sense of what has happened to our schools through this short story titled, "The History of Teaching Math."

Teaching Math In 1950:

A logger sells a truckload of lumber or $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price. What is his profit?

Teaching Math In 1960:

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price, or $80. What is his profit?

Teaching Math In 1970:

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80. Did he make a profit?

Teaching Math In 1980:

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80 and his profit is $20. Your assignment is to underline the number 20.

Teaching Math In 1990:

By cutting down beautiful forest trees, the logger makes $20. What do you think of this way of making a living? Topic for class participation after answering the question: "How did the forest birds and squirrels feel as the logger cut down the trees?" (Let's discussion the issue of removing all logging from our country. There are no wrong answers.)

Teaching Math In 2000:

"El hachero vende un camion carga por $100. La cuesta de production es . . . "


Is it any wonder employers don't want to hire American workers.
