    And let's not not forget the most insidious problem of all- lawsuits- if the schools make one so-called misstep.

    Darwin's Law has totally been skewed by society's need to coddle. No wonder "advanced civilizations" fail.

    This is why today's children are not taught the tools they need to succeed. Parents rely on the school...school drops the ball the majority of the time...even though they claim to know what's best. As my kids have gotten older...I have found that I fight the schools to enforce their own rules and guidelines every bit as much as I fight my kids to abide by them. The kids with slacker parents just fall through the cracks.
