Oh my.

The SFUSD’s efforts to infuse ethnic studies principles into its curriculum are taking place against the backdrop of state level efforts to create a model ethnic studies curriculum for grades K-12 from which California school districts may draw.
Oops

That effort, however, ran into trouble on Monday when a draft proposal for the new curriculum was rejected by the state’s Board of Education for falling “short” of its intended goals.

The State Board of Education in July 2018 approved guidelines for an ethnic studies curriculum that could be sampled by K-12 teachers throughout California. But the board this week scrapped the proposal, which was nearing the end of a public comment period on Friday, amid criticism from Jewish groups who deemed it “anti-semitic.”

Some kiddies could not care less about education.

Anyways, those 7 to 8 hour days are a waste, just a babysitting-service......most of that nonsense they are trying to teach is never learned, or promptly forgotten.

Chicano3000X, the state of PA has doubled the spending per student over the past 2 decades plus and that is adjusted for inflation. Testing scores are flatlined.

Neither do I, how we are funding education is what I have problem with. Homeschoolers should not be left with the option of "take it or leave it" especially when they are paying taxes.

There is no lack of education funding.

There is lack of:

* Standards ("No Child Left Behind" lol)
* Parenting
* IQ
It would be great to have school loans also. So the kids could be in debt from 4 years onwards ,instead of just having college debt. It would be absolutely ggreat for the banks.

Elementary to high school education should not be free.
