Originally Answered: Is this the reason that American public schools are so bad?
Do you work in a public school? I doubt it. If you did, you would know that beautiful things happen every day in American public schools. Kids are smart, insightful, and creative, and they go on to do wonderful things.
I've been a teacher in a public school for quite a while, and I have never heard any colleague of mine say, "Your country is evil" or, "Your race sucks." Never.
Judging by your own poor writing skills, you didn't get a very good education yourself. You're awfully bitter. And awfully racist. Not even worth responding to, but I couldn't resist...
I also read a couple of the other responses to your lovely, poorly-informed rant... All these people saying there aren't any good teachers anymore. Most of my colleagues are smart, motivated, committed professionals. (Of course, there are some duds, but that's true of any profession.) A strong salary and amazing benefits have attracted wonderful people to the public schools of NYC; my school alone has several Ivy League graduates. I'm no slouch, myself-- graduated college with a 4.0, scored in the 99th percentile on my SATs and LSATs (before I realized that teaching was waaaay more rewarding than lawyering), and attended an Ivy League graduate school for my masters degree. (As an aside, I can't help but wonder, oh-racist-one, what is YOUR level of education?)
My point is, anyway: there are amazing, smart, successful, effective teachers in American public schools.
