There was a time when public schools were seen as the glue that held the nation together. But today, they are the force that is doing precisely the opposite (“Is the Public School System Constitutional?” The Wall Street Journal, Oct. 22).
There are many reasons for the dramatic change, but I submit that the No. 1 factor is the refusal of local boards of education to listen to parents in deciding the curriculum. Critical race theory is the best example. By substituting indoctrination for education, it is dividing the country.
Too many students graduate high school unable to read and write at grade level because they have instead been taught that they are victims of a racist society. It’s a formula that shows no sign of abating.
