The Governors are concerned, and Bill Gate's has declared American high schools obsolete.
"America's high schools are obsolete," Gates said. "By obsolete, I don't just mean that they're broken, flawed or underfunded, though a case could be made for every one of those points. By obsolete, I mean our high schools _ even when they're working as designed _ cannot teach all our students what they need to know today."
Guess we can chalk up another social program thats been ruined by liberal and democrat interference. Of course, I've been arguing for years that we need to get rid of the Department of Education and merge whatever few legitimate functions it might have with the Department of Labor which should then work with states to design programs based upon the needs of each individual states. Think of school as job training, its original purpose - until we let the hippies take control.
