The school system needs to go back to basic needs without frills and superfluous classes.

Why do we have public education in lieu of TRADE SCHOOLS?

The old standby reasons for public education were READING, WRITING and ARITHMETIC.

Everything else became additive and socialogically directed. Ergo, everything beyond the " Basics " could be construed as " superfluous .

Eliminate School Choice. Busing needs to be determined by regions
