The main thing that is wrong with the United States

On Montel Williams right now they are discussing how to improve education in the US, and the discussion revolves around how and in what amount we should punish teachers whose children aren’t learning so well.

Montel noted that South Korea and Japan had the highest ranked (by somebody) educational systems. I have a strange feeling that South Korea and Japan do not punish teachers, but the question of whether they do or don’t seems not even to occur.

This is the main thing that is wrong about the United States, that we still think there is a devil in each of us that has to be punished out. There is no such devil.
