I grit my teeth everytime I read a solution on inproving our educational system. Throwing more money at the problem is not the answer and better teachers is not the solution.

Schools should not be a mall enviroment where youth hang out, share stories and look for ways to be pleasured.

Uniforms must be mandatory to remove status labeling and grouping.

Schools are for educating only therefore….

study halls, sports and clubs will cease to exist.

The Teacher will stand on a platform above the class level to show authority. Their dress shall be highly professional for recognition.

Discipline is a must. Any student disrupting the class will leave and a parental conference required for re-entry.
