Actually, you have hit on one of my greatest frustrations. Here in
America, we try very hard to provide education for everybody.
Having taught in an urban high school, myself, I felt the deepest depths
of frustration being in a school that provided everything, materially (rooms,
books, relatively small classrooms, an excellent library, all the printing I
needed) only to have a bunch of snotty, ungrateful, undisciplined 14-year
olds treat me like absolute crap, and do everything possible to
prevent me from doing my job (which is why I left HS teaching and went
back to teaching college).

We do provide education for everyone. Too many of our young
people are pi$$ing it away, and making our schools impossible places to
teach.
