The sorry state of elementary education today; in which "teaching to the test", as well as boring literature selections (which more often than not turn a child off from reading) are the new standard.
The story "A Very Important Day" (Houghton-Mifflin anthology) reads like the shipboard manifest of immigrants arriving from every conceivable country ---and the high point of the plot is the "characters" citizenship swearing- in ceremony .

Kids today don't even know what state they live in, but they do know how to do a powerpoint presentation full of misinformation----that's deaducation for you!
