College Prep: By The Numbers

Here are some interesting, as well as startling statistics for your consideration …

  1. It’s a mess and has been trending this way since the 70’s.
    My grand daughters attend a private Christian school with a great reputation, they keep all the students SAT scores posted on a bulletin board as a reminder and incentive for the younger students to work hard, which they do.
    My brother’s grand daughter is quite a gal. She began sitting in a deer stand with Mom and Dad at age three, was a slugging third baseman on her “Lady Bug” baseball team. She is also a piano prodigy and has been studying under a Master for several years, and is now learning the violin. She has been learning Chinese for four years and is now onto Russian(why I don’t know). The only time she ever set foot in a public classroom was to take the SAT at the age of 12…she has always been home schooled. She didn’t even take a SAT prep class, just an internet course and she scored 1400. Not long after that two things happened, the first was her invitation to audition for the Dallas Symphony’s Junior Orchestra and was informed by SMU she could monitor any of their classes at any time. She is going on fifteen now and will begin college when she is 16.
    Our public indoctrination centers are a failure in educating our children.

  2. Yep. If you have children or grandchildren in a public school, look over their textbooks. Oh, that’s right, they can’t bring them home!

  3. Education has been made easier because too many people were failing. I agree degree’s are harder than high school but that’s how it should be. We can’t live in a nanny state!
