If my blog has caught your eye, perhaps you would be interested in reading through this blog as well! Stargirl discusses another topic within the realm of education, focusing on the debate surrounding public education.  Some of the main concerns that are examined include overcrowding in classrooms, underpaid teachers, and the lack of motivation among teachers and students.  I’ve found similarities in a couple of her posts to mine as well, due to our comparable research findings.  She includes alarming statistics specific to North Carolina and comparisons across the country that were both shocking and intriguing.  In addition, the differences between public and private schools are discussed, which is a very hot topic for debate.  You’ll also find information on chronic absenteeism and the role that poverty plays in our education system.  Lastly, this blogger poses an interesting solution to improving the public education system in the United States that you don’t want to miss!
