A Classical Education
Throughout many great nations,
There roars one sad mesage,
Our educational systems today are on mere rations.
A scrap of knowledge,
One taught here
And another taught there,
Can this scarcely make a difference when a student
Learns that grades are important and learning isn't prudent
You can't blame the student who would rather bring home a 100,
Then to contend with a 50,
As parents learn that all of those hundreds on junior's report card is real nifty.
At the next dinner party, Father turns to friend
" Isn't my son smart he is only in Kindergarten
But he is made all A's- 17 courses and that isn't the end"
"We hope to get him into a private 1st grade where he can get 23!"
Hopeless, foreshaken, misunderstood,
Is eudcatioal system still good?
Could we be under attack?
Who is our enemy?
Who are our friends?
Please let me know,
Wake me when this is over,
I need to know where I send my child so they can get into Andover.
