Mind blown -- 6 Myths about public education debunked

I'm mostly linking to this here, so I can find it later. 

The article, "Six Lies Most People Believe About U.S. Schools," from The Federalist is pretty mind-blowing. (Well, not to those of us who are fans of critical thinking, but to, you know, the navel-gazing general public).

You should really click on the link and read the whole thing, but, here are the 6 myths debunked:

1. America’s rich, suburban schools are high quality

2. Poverty is the root of America's education problem

3. Schools should teach generic skills like "critical thinking"

4. Teachers are well prepared professionals

5. Education is non-partisan and amoral (Anyone who believes this one has obviously not visited a public school on Earth Day.)

6. Practically everyone should go to college
