My 3rd grade son's teacher this year transferred from Dallas public schools. She told us that in Dallas her day was (something like) 90% discipline 10% teaching, and now it's 95% teaching 5% discipline So, obviously kids in those school districts aren't learning much during the day. And not only that, they're probably being trained to get away with what they can until the teacher says stop. My other son's kindergarten teacher last year had transferred from Baltimore and said similar things.
I don't know who else you could blame except the parents.
