Here’s an anecdote illustrating what’s wrong with public school education. My old high school is Canton High in Canton, Mass. When I graduated the senior class was probably about 300-some kids, about 1,200 for the whole school. Today, the average class and total population is about half that. Yet, even with that many students back in the day, Canton High was highly rated in academics. We consistently had state, regional, and national champions for math and science teams. It’s not like our education was suffering for lack of space.
