The Deplorable State Of Our Educational System
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Dear Readers,

Have you had a chance to hear the news about the Atlanta administrators and teachers cheating on their state test to make it seem as if their students were making huge academic gains? The allegations state that they have done so for years. I could only but shake my head in true cynical disappointment.

As someone who has worked in education for almost 15 years, stories like the aforementioned just feed my belief that in many of our schools, if not in the majority, the education of our youth is taken ever so lightly.

Why do people, government, administrators, teachers make a mockery out of our educational system? BECAUSE for the most part, it is taken as a joke!

The state in which our education system has been degraded to nowadays has yet to show any signs of morbid life. When an industrialized, global, democratic, yet egemonic nation such as ours portrays the advances of intellect and academic supremacy as a facade to limitless ignorance, the egocentric and epecurian ways in which our youth is being raised, lets its ugly and monstrous head appear. Can we continue this path of crippled wisdom without auto-digesting ourselves? Until when will our children regret the ways in which their society dragged them to the abysm of putrid decay? Yet there is no one in power who can, but more importantly will stop this diviation to knowledgeless hell. Perhaps there will be a time, when our youth will stand up for freedom, with desire to reach out to a past long gone by, back when appreciation, esteem, respect, and love for wisdom, and learning, and knowledge helped our Nation to become what we greedily with our own hands have destroyed.

It is time that all of us, yes all of us whether directly or indirectly involved in the education of our children, to take a stand in defense of our values, morals, convictions, of our learning. These children today, whom we are teaching will be some day directing us, guiding us, to where they never learned and blindly teaching their own children something that we dismissed to teach.

I know it all sounds hopeless and depressing. YET, there are things that can be done. WHHAT can we, what can YOU do? Talk to your child's teacher, communicate with your administrators, school board, cabinet, and superintendent. Show up at the board meetings. Make it to the PTA meetings. Make sure you share with other parents the concerns of our educational system. Write to your representatives. VOTE. Get involved!

Best Regards,

Maya
