As a certified High School Educator in the subjects of Chemistry, Biology, and Physical Sciences, I have taught in the Government school system.  We need to get back to the basics. I believe the problems we see in society today is the failure of our public schools to teach history and patriotism in our schools.  School choice should liberate parents and students from failing schools.  Vocational/Technical education should be expanded to traditional universities and government schools to augment the workforce.
