Throughout the 70's and 80's America made the conscious decision to incarcerate way more people for way longer and a lot of Americans made the conscious decision to make sure those incarcerated people were black.  It led to an explosion in locked up people that dwarfed other countries.  Broken culture, indeed.
True.  But it got worse in the 90s, especyafter a certain crime bill.  But we won’t get into that- it is quite political.  I am just bidin my time until that gets talked about.

The '94 crime bill had a negligible effect on incarceration overall, though it was clearly a product of the tough on crime attitude poular at the time.  As was this..

It's definitely true that public schools have a lot harder time picking the people who attend them
It's definitely true that inner city schools don't suck because of their budget or facilities.

A private school generally speaking can kick out a kid who misbehaves consistently.  They don't need to accept students who are mentally challenged.  They don't HAVE to accept any students they don't like.  

Public schools don't have that option, though they can expel students at some point.  That point is pretty far gone, and some students relish being expelled.

In some public schools, just maintaining any sense of decorum is a major effort, forget about teaching anything.

Private schools cannot discriminate on any basis.

Yep. It is the students and the parents that make inner city schools suck. If they don't change their attitude, all the money and top of the line facilities in the world aren't going to make a particle of difference. It is the laziest solution imaginable. Just throw more money down that drain; wash, rinse, repeat.

They are always searching around for someone else to blame for their troubles. Never looking inwardly in order to evaluate what they might be able to do differently in order to improve their lot in life. You won't get anywhere with that attitude.

I'd also call out many teachers, the school boards and the teacher's unions.

I don't know. I think this applies to much of our population today. The boomers are aging and the X'rs are holding up the fort.

I blame the media.  And Badgerfan of course.  And Tu'a.  And Saban.  And Eastern Michigan of course.  And Trump and Biden and Democrats and Republicans and Fauci and Birx and the CDC and Chick-fil-A and Christians and Muslims and atheists and agnostics who can't make up their minds and Facebook of course And Elon and General Motors and Illinois and Slive and the playoff committee and ESPN ....

Give me a minute, I'm out of breath.

Don't forget immigrants. They've been the star attraction of getting blame lately

Yeah, immigrants especially, like my wife of course, and her kids.  And Muslims, I should include them.  And anyone that doesn't look pretty much like me.

The wife and I remind each other every day how fortunate we are.  It's good thing, as opposed to blaming someone or something for whatever it is we lack.

"They" recently upgraded out internet, for free.  It's not really faster, I haven't tried uploads yet, but the wifi signal is stronger.  The dude said it was 114 somethings per furlong, they had guaranteed at least 100 SPF, which is nice to have when the sun is out.
