Our current education system is our nation s greatest tragedy. One that if not quickly remedied will have the longest lasting ill effects in these years to come.
Over the past few decades, we have seen a rapid decline in our education. The Department of Education spends tens of millions of dollars towards improvements, yet test averages continue to decline at an alarming rate. The question they will not answer is: Why our students are still failing despite all the efforts?
From inside a women s correctional facility to a small town junior high, a teacher on the inside takes you on a tour of our public education system, and exposes the hypocrisy of the philosophy: they preach, what they don t want you to teach. Learn the incredible secrets they don t want you to know.

Self-appreciation is lacking in a plain little girl when she arrives in a new town all alone. The townspeople are astonished, “My, she’s plain!” But, of course they were normal. They were colored folks like you’d find anywhere. They were blue. They were green. They were orange. They were red. They were spotted and dotted on their bodies, hair, and heads. They were striped and plaid and flowered and checked. They were abstract and camouflaged and arrowed and flecked.
Jane appealed to their kindness, hoping that there might be anyone who would take her in… someone who would not consider her plainness a sin. They take her in all right, but decide to change her, fix her, make her bright.
