Honestly as bad as common

Honestly as bad as common core is it's not what prompted me to feel this way and it wasn't the "militarization" of public schooling either. My opposition to public schooling came years ago from reading hundreds of stories like the one posted earlier about the black students attending Washington and Lee University who want Lee's name dropped from the school. They don't know the history behind the "civil" war and I would wager they also don't know anything of the federal reserve, the Gulf of Tonkin, etc.
