    It all starts with the schools. My job takes me inside school classrooms in districts and schools all over middle Georgia. It's absolutely pathetic what is passed off as education in some areas. Even if the kids took it seriously, which they don't because they aren't encouraged to, they still would not get the education kids in other areas do.

    Also, to whoever cares, the correct spelling of the word is "vilify".

    I agree that education is of utmost importance, but it doesn't start there, it starts at home. Kids have to have respect to learn, and they don't. Some parents simply view school as a daycare.

    what good teachers want to work in urban schools where they are basically thrown into the middle of gang warfare and a rap video. And the parents complain to the school that their kids are out of control yet couldn't tell you much about their kids.

    Teachers are forced to dumb down the curriculum so the kids don't fail and the schools can meet federal standards of passing kids.

    Banter all you want. My constitution says that I can have my gun because it allows for militia activity, which ensures good government.

    Ain't no one taking my gun, unless it's from my dead hand. I am willing to die on that hill.

    Militia activity does no such thing...it did, once upon a time...

    Then move. Why is it that some people simply don't accept crappy conditions and do something to make change while others just do nothing and say, "See, our schools suck, it's not our fault our kids aren't getting a good education." Then you hear of other parents who simply don't accept a bad environment and do what that have to to change it.

    It still could, but they have successfully made it so meaningful militias can no longer exist. They have vilified them.

    The solution is not abandoning the students to poor conditions...the solution is to help the students lift themselves up to the best of your ability...
