This week we’re talking education. Since school’s back in (and we are free of that responsibility, thank God) we decided now would be a good time to have a quick talk about the educational system in the U.S. Moreover, the question we asked was: Is the US school system failing our children? Does the current way of “educating” our youth actually work anymore? We drew on our experiences going through high school to college and offered some of the experiences out 3 girls have had going to college to provide perspective and context for our opinions, so keep in mind, this is NOT an indictment of education, college or school in general. What it IS, though, is an attempt to spark conversations we wished we’d had when we were going from high school to college and conversations we wished we’d had more often with our children.
