You are right on the money everywhichway!

Human beings, specially children, are made to learn.  Children, sometimes well into adulthood and even old age, love to learn, to acquire new information.

A study of what interferes with this, or what stops it cold-- would likely reveal mental exhaustion as a major factor, and lead to some other shocking awakenings as to what our educational system is doing to kids and ultimately to this nation.

NO fan -cont.
( hit the add comment button before I was finished ! ) Anyway, one reason for this -I think- is that as a society, we don't know what our priorities are- and we want the schools to teach EVERYTHING!  So, more and more homework' more and more testing, and more stress on famalies AND overworked teachers! I don't believe we need 'just the basics'  -at all. But we need to focus in a little on what to teach -and not just go in al directions - and the situation could improve.

No fan of public education
Lots of very good people in public education. -Lots of very bad ones too. The system has in fact not changed with society, and -in my opinion as a TAX PAYER- has more wrong than right with it. It's -a very sad situation really-. Children don't have time for childhood. Parents don't have time to be parents and enjoy their children -every night -for so many , is just a struggle between bills and homework. No time for life- and then it's over. . . . . . .  .   .    .

Re:
I agree, parents should be very involved in the education of their children.  Education is the ticket to a good future and is too important to be left to chance.  In a world of not enough time, priorities are a must and a good education should be right at the top of the list.

I believe a lot of parents underestimate the importance of their input and involvement in a child's education! I have seen that parents who are involved have a greater likelihood of successful students! sam
