There’s nothing wrong with changing education standards as long as the end result is improved products of the system. We all know tampering with many of the basics in education have had dire results, along with a dumbing down of requirements for advancement. Then there have been the social problems in which children are being sent to school with near zero preparation from the home environment. Many, many years ago kindergartens were established to better prepare children for the first grade. Now we have preschool programs for the very young since the need has been determined beyond a reasonable doubt.

In spite of all of the tampering and the negative social problems, such as broken families, our schools have turned out many topnotch students who have gone to brilliant careers. To condemn the entire educational system we have today is ignorance. Yes, there are problems, but the ship is not sinking.
