Bullies and bad academics may have been a problem in the past, but it was LESS of a problem when the spirit of the school brought God into it, and was less indulgent of general misbehavior.

Once upon a time, schools knew how to do a lot of things right. Never perfectly, of course, but they turned out a lot of well-adjusted, well-educated boys and girls at one point.

But, really, not so much in my lifetime. The government schools have almost willfully moved away from any techniques that might lead to success. Getting God out of the classroom was their first really big mistake.

I would rather eat beans and rice every day than send my kids to a public school system that teaches the doubt of God, and is full of disrespectful kids and adults, for that matter. What an utter disgrace.

The kid is from Darby, I don’t know which school but I know the town. Could very well have been a racial attack.

Nonsense. At one time the bad kids were sent to reform schools. They were removed from the general population, a practical solution. Nowadays, the modern day psychologists and sociologists preach inclusion in the belief hanging around good people will make them good. This is not practical. America has lost its way in pragmatism.
