2. Education

Another thing that is very bad about our country is that a lot of women can’t raise their children properly because they must return to work—if they don’t want to lose their jobs, of course! This happens because there is no paid maternity leave, and you have no guarantee that your employer will pay you to stay home and raise your children for at least one year. Do you know that only two other countries in the world are dealing with this particular situation? While parental leave is a severe concern, Americans also have issues with the educational system, where not all children receive adequate financial support for quality education.

Compared to schools attended by wealthier kids, schools attended by disadvantaged African American people receive far less financing. It’s not surprising that America has one of the largest achievement gaps between high- and low-income students, according to OECD measurements. And regrettably, racial segregation in schools is still a problem today, worse than it was back in the day.

Unfortunately, America stands out pretty low among the countries that take care of their students because, while in other areas 70% of the college tuition is paid by the state, in the U.S. only 40% of the cost of education is covered.

  1. Why don’t you tell the truth. Our society is so mess up people have lost it. Oh! by the way why aren’t you talking about blacks over running our streets killing maiming and destroying our cities.Killing,hurt random people and seniors and kids.NO! instead you are going for the average American’s fear. That what you guys do! fear mongering! blame average joe for our government failures! People can be pushed so far and a monster are created. You guys spin their fear that is all you guys do. So most of this is on you. You are the promoters, aren’t you?

  2. Sounds like you are Anti Republican, look at all the people let out of jail.
    How many are committing more crimes now?

  3. fist thing is proper training at early age, most parents do not know how to raise kids properly. and the educational system needs a complete overhall, murder rate in US is so high because of mental issues
    with no help in sight, guns are not the problem. a loaded gun sitting on a table does not kill a person untill a person picks it up does that! the US with all its billionaires and millionaires should be the smartest, healthiest, and most crime free country, but the rich and the politicians, just want more and
    they do not care about the underdogs which is the biggest population of the country. I do not know how we can change it, but we have to try or we will be that 3rd world country!
