It appears to me that for many individuals our schooling system is failing more and more typically. I’ve been uncovered to individuals of all ages, all sexes, and from all walks of life, who can’t learn, or can not read moderately nicely. People who can’t do simple arithmetic with no calculator. Individuals who know little or nothing about the geography or historical past of this nation, much much less every other. Individuals of all colours and ethnicities born and reared in this nation who can not converse or write correct English. Positively one thing must be achieved to improve our educational system.
