The Root is in the Home

I know that we as a society are being outnumbered and overrun by families that not only don’t teach simple social and fundamental skills at home but also don’t feed or clothe their children properly, and not only expect but REQUIRE the school to do it for them. Schools, composed mostly of kind, caring people who would never let an innocent child sit shivering and hungry, step up and do the parents’ jobs. This means that the primary function of a school – academics – is often left in the lurch as we struggle to not merely help children learn, but to raise them. I don’t know what the answer is. I’m not sure what the question is. But something in our society is very, very wrong, and I’m pretty certain the root of it is in the home.
