Is our children learning?

U.S. scores low on child welfare

The United States and Britain ranked at the bottom of a United Nations survey of child welfare in 21 wealthy countries that assessed everything from infant mortality to whether children ate dinner with their parents or were bullied at school.

From what I’m reading in this, there seems to be a total breakdown of support for families. Particularly for single parent households.

You have religious wack jobs who will tout the “Nuclear family” and nothing else. You have zealots on the right who scream against Hillary’s plan to bring a “Universalized Health Care” system to the U.S. Fact is, kids get sick, and parents can’t afford to take them to the doctors with no insurance.

That’s not to let the Left off the hook. Children being bullied with the lame-ass cliche of “fighting is not the answer” and nothing else doesn’t help. There’s a great program in our district that teaches kids to negotiate and reason with their enemies… but in the real world we know that doesn’t always work.

And Child Protective Services? Don’t even get me started on how many things are wrong with that bureaucracy…
