There should be stringent requirements which make a high school diploma a guarantee that the student can read, write, and perform more than just basic arithmetic. For that matter, a driver's license should not be available to anyone who hasn't passed a basic proficiency test equivalent to completing the tenth grade. Our educational system rubber stamps a bunch of incompetent kids rather than holding them accountable. We put all the pressure on teachers as if teachers can teach students who aren't held accountable. Put the accountability where it belongs (ON THE STUDENTS) and the whole system will actually start working the way it should!

That's about the way I see it. We are far too lenient with kids nowadays. You hear all this pathetic whining about how tough it is for kids nowadays, but I don't see how that's even remotely the case. Kids are more sheltered and more pampered than ever before. Sure they may be more knowledgeable about sexual things, but it's all presented to them on a screen in the safety of their homes or in their parents' car as they get driven somewhere. There has never been a more selfish, helpless, and generally useless crop of kids ever in the history of the planet. The majority of kids born after 1995 are worthless!

Majority worthless? No way! The bottom ten percent? Unfortunately, yes. Low performing kids need options and we do not give them options that allow them to be successful. Of course, what those options might possibly be is quite open to debate!
