40 Years Ago

North Platte, Nebraska

November 12, 2022

Friedman's "Free To Chose" remains essential watching 40 (actually 42) years after it aired.

It is sad to know that the situation with school has only gotten worse. I appreciate what Friedman proposes but I think it is a simplistic approach. The problem is much deeper as the panelists point out.

I are behind -- way behind -- having the best school system in the world. We should aim to close the gap between public schools and private schools. Make being a public school teacher a career that that pays well and is thought of with respect. Have more teachers so class sizes are smaller.

I'm glad my kids are past this phase. But I do worry about the issue for the future of our country. Colleges are now athletic factories. We don't have enough kids involved in STEM. The list goes on.
