Sometimes I read the discussions on Lynchburg next door. Last week there was a discussion on the failure of our education system. No one can deny that, and other countries are eating our lunch where education is concerned. And the Covic lockdown was a real blow to all the students who were kept at home. Considering there is statistically zero chance of a kid dying of COVID, it was criminal to lock down the schools. But how do we improve the education system? We might begin at home. Let’s take cell phones for instance. Why would a kid have a cell phone in school? Parents say it’s so they can reach them in an emergency. They could do that in the past - they just call the school! I recently saw a video of a small teacher who took a cell phone from a very large girl who was using it in class. The teacher was beaten nearly to death. The other kids just videoed the beating! Cell phones in school zero have purpose. Maybe that would be a good place just to start.
