Bruce Deitrick Price says, “The traditional view is simply stated: the purpose of public education is to take each child as far as each child can be taken. Who can disagree with that?
If a school is aiming for less, that school would seem to me to be guilty of malpractice or false advertising. Doesn’t the word “education” imply a striving for excellence? At the end of each school year, children are presumed to know more than at the start. Isn’t that a reasonable presumption?
Somewhat bizarrely, given what’s going on in our public schools, the Education Establishment might claim they agree.Oh yes, of course, that’s exactly what we want to do.
But that’s not what they have been doing for a long time.”
