Worried about our futre?

Parents, time to panic about our kids' education

It seems like not a day goes by anymore that I don't hear one person or another wanting change from our country. We want more jobs, more money, less debt, more action, more stability. We want someone to tell us everything will be just fine. Well I am here to say it can be but WE need to do something about it. My cousin who is in education posted the above article to The Facebook and it just got my wheels turning on this slow Tuesday morning. If you don't want to read the article that's fine, the main point I pulled from it is that we are all worried where the country is going but no one is looking at our less then impressive education system and whats coming out of it. The way I see it with all these people out of work I would think parents would have more time to help their children at home. I think too many parents take a back seat roll in their children's education. That's what school is for. Right? NO! We don't want the government to tell us if we can/should have kids that we cant support but we want them to be responsible for feeding them, paying their medical bills, and educating them. How would we feel if Obama stood on capital hill and repeated what I just said? The whole damn country would be wanting to kick his ass out of the white house but its absolutely true. I think we as Americans need to take a step back and realize that we are acting like a bunch of kids. We want our cake and we want to eat it too. We need to take the wheel when it comes to our children's future because they will be the ones deciding/providing ours. We continue to let our children's education fall by the wayside because we are too focused on fighting about medicare and social security. This is of course how I feel if you don't like it there is a little red X in the corner just click it!
