Joining the Blogging Community...

Check out my eldest son Robert's blog, Education Can Be Saved, at!

Here's a clip from his latest post:

Our public school system is designed to educate the masses to be obedient and good workers. However those who are innovators are changing the world so quickly that by the time a person is a College Graduate over 50% of what he learned as a Freshman no longer applies. That is if they graduate in 4 years, not 5.5 like me. How can a school system work when its focus is on making people job ready, when we don’t even know what jobs are going to be there for them in 5, 10 or 15 years from now? It is rather presumptive by our school boards and federal government to say they know what the best job path is for our children.

So what is the answer? Children must be taught to think, love to learn and know how to learn; a classical education.
