PODCAST: Back to School — The State of Education in America

Do you know what the first 10 amendments to the constitution are called?

If you said the Bill of Rights, congratulations, you are in the 33% of college graduates that know that fact…yes only 33%.

Host Joseph Backholm is joined by The Washington Stand’s Sam McCarthy. Educators and schools have a powerful influence on what the next generation values and believes. Children spend close to 16,000 hours in the classroom so what are they absorbing?

Sam & Joseph discuss the importance of parents instilling critical thinking and morality within their children. They also highlight the need to go back to the basics of education where parents and educators worked together — not separate — to mold and shape the minds of future generations.
