Who has failed in education? Parents,teachers, students, or government?
All..but more so the parent's in the supposed family life afforded all children and supposedly guarded by Human Resources. The schools are to blame in the fact that they have been so complacent in allowing he travesties to continue without great and loud complaints. The government is at fault because a lack of realistic addressing of needed subjects, such as money to build and repair old schools, teacher's pay, basic supplies that kids need to learn properly. It is a shared dilemma and one in which many are at fault and in not doing the right and proper things in addressing needs. The children suffer as a result!!!
Parents. They brought these children into the world. It is their job to focus on their education, clothing, food intake, health, etc. Their child's needs are the parents responsibility to analyze, observe, and commit.
I would suggest that the only ones who have not failed are young children, say, before high school.
In any systemic failure, all parties involved bear some of the responsibility. But, at this point, most of the causes of the failure go back generations. How can poorly educated parents (themselves children of poorly educated parents) and poorly educated teachers, organized by a government composed of poorly educated politicians and government workers, create a good educational system and provide good education. So, these days, everyone is responsible and no one is to blame.
I don't see a systemic solution; I see public education as essential to democracy, and also as a failed experiment.
On an individual level, anyone can choose to educate himself. An essential element is to decide to learn how to learn. Another is to commit to that learning, no matter what anyone else does.
All of the above.
But it's been by design. The Rockefellers have long wanted only obedient slaves.
Watch the following video. It explains so much and what we can do to change things for the better, not just in education, but in economy, government, prosperity, international relations, and much more.

Do you agree with the teachers strike in Chicago?The Chicago Teachers Union is on strike for the first time in 25 years. It is the 3rd largest school system in the US. The school board agreed on a 16% increase in salary over the next four years. So what, may you ask, are they striking about?...

What steps do you think we should take to improve our education system?I'd like to see more courses in our high schools that embrace the arts and the humanities, and performance-based assessments as opposed to "teaching to the test."

Has anyone noticed that the focus is never REALLY on education? It's like the red-headed step-child of political hopefuls. If they don't pretend to care, they don't stand a chance getting elected, but if they really cared, they wouldn't get to be prominent in politics, because the...

Teachers often complain about low pay; the claim to be overworked and under-compensated. The say that they deserve to be paid more, since they are responsible for teaching the next generation. Yet, when the subject of the ever falling standards and performance of students comes up, they rarely have...
