    My "education" system exceedes public school. It includes my father-my best teacher, life itself-learn things for yourself. There are lots of books and stories I take example from.

    It never got a chance to, my sons, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, have all been educated in Japan. My nieces & nephews and grandnieces & grandnephews, have gone to private schools that don't have an agenda or have been home-schooled.

    I have failed myself because I did not think to ask the right questions, talk to the right people, and realize that there are very few people like me at an early age in life. Had I known I could have graduated early and how to apply myself, I would have been one of those teenagers in college who finishes with a doctorate degree by the age of 18. Instead I have let my own ignorance get the better of me, and feel that nobody can give me the answers I need get beyond the point where I am at in my life.

    I went to a poor school in a bad neighborhood, with underpaid new teachers that were often teaching scared. I left in my Junior year and finished High school while on active duty in the Navy. I think funding failed to reach that school and academically it was pretty sad.

    My incompetent teachers whom knew nothing of the subjects they taught were an embarrassment to the teaching profession. My education system failed me because it refused to challenge me. The cookie cutter, one size fits all approach does not work with teaching.

    My education system never failed me, I failed myself more because I did not do more for myself. I could have done a better job in school.

    It was a private school and it thought everyone different had ADHD. The teachers were interested in the subjects they taught and their students, but didn't seem to want to attempt to help the outliers. They were always available for tutoring. My problem wasn't that I didn't hear them the first 60 times, but couldn't interpret that information and they couldn't make me understand with drugs. I don't consider it a complete failure, because it taught me other great life lessons.

    The expense to get a degree has failed everyone over the past 30 years. I think parents are less involved than they used to be. I think we expect a lot more from teachers than we used to as well. Our country needs to refocus itself on education and make it a priority. Just like going to the Moon or the Manhattan project...when you focus everyone on the importance...outcomes become a reality.

    No. My children went to parochial school for 8 years and then my son went to the public High School while my daughter went to a private school. I gave them a choice and those are the choices they made. Both of them graduated in the top of their classes and went on to college. Both graduated with honors and went to get good jobs and they're both off on their own now.
    Things don't usually work out so well but I can honestly say that both the public schools and the private school did a great job educating my kids and preparing them for college. And they both went through the Massachusetts state college system. No complaints there either. It was a great experience for both of them.

    I dropped out of high school, joined the Navy and saw the world. I can spell reasonably well, type, use a spellchecker for the hard words, and I'm (I've been told) inventive and artistic. I think It treated me pretty well, aside from the stress and anxiety I felt from being picked on.

    Back when I went through, the US educational system was in good health. It worked great for my youngest son as well, because South Eastern Virginia had a strong system of special education for the gifted and talented. He's about to make Captain in the Army and move on to graduate work for his Masters -- hopefully at MIT. But it is failing far too many kids now. It needs to be fixed, not scrapped. Privatization is a terrible idea.

    if making money is the end all, perhaps not because I know how to make money... but as far discovering the intricacies of which I have always had an inherent fascination, Yes, and the worst part is that I believe that while the monetary difference in my life would not be in my favour I would have accomplished what I really wanted to from the time I was a child... So if I had to delineate between money and the actual benefit of my desired interest I would have to say that if the goal of education was to serve humanity I would have to say that it had actually failed itself... and does the same over and over until the exponential loss of talent and creativity weighs our society down and it comes to a lumbering halt...

    I come from an older generation when elementary, high schools and colleges demanded high quality. They did not bring down education standards for those who could not learn, though there were special classes for those who needed extra help. Also schools are far more tough on the East Coast than West Coast.

    It didn't fail me. I have many friends that it did though, in the LD programs, which included ADD and ADHD kids. The problem with lumping them into these Learning Disabled Program (How nonmotivational is that for a title?) is that they get a dumbed down program when what they really need is a more chalenging and rewarding presentation. This program has another setback, though it can make a high school diploma more acheivable, it makes starting college more tough on students because it forces more pre-requisital classes on them before they can start most career choices. No wonder America is stupid to the rest of Earth....

    It fails to prepare you for the real world, and has focused on aspects which made all attempts at education a collosal failure. I had to learn everything the hard way.

    besides the basic knowledge, we should have the freedom to chose what area we'd like to educate in from an earlier age, so that our interests expand further..
