Having graduated in the early 90s, which to today's kids is an ETERNITY ago, I am saddened and more than a little irritated with the lack of education that the public school system offers. Even before I was a freshman in high school, we chose a "career path", whether it be general education, business, agriculture, etc. I distinctly remember sitting in a class where you were taught how to balance a checkbook and how to fill out a job resume, EARLY in high school! Today, as I have so blatently been made aware of, the focus is now on transgender children, their rights and equality, as well as other topics which offer todays youth ANY hope of becoming anything. I feel sorry for todays kids who have not obtained the necessary elements to become an adult because the schools are too worried about being politically correct. It will not kill any child to have a dose of reality. Today's schools only serve to make them soft, and then when they get into the real world, they have no idea how to handle any form of criticism, even when it is deserved. I no longer plan to contribute to the dumbing down of todays society. Wake up people. Get with the program!
