Blog: The Basics of Scientology: Study Tech - 2017-07-27
Education is one of the most controversial subjects in the United States and perhaps in the world. The bulk of a child's life is spent in public or private schools or, for some, in home schooling. A great deal of money and time are spent not only in directly educating children, but also in figuring out how to best go about this job. In the fall of 2016, about 50.4 million students attended public elementary and secondary schools while an additional 5.2 million attended private elementary and secondary schools. The public school system alone employs about 3.1 million full-time teachers, so when one is talking education, we are talking about a lot of people and a big investment of money and time. Clearly, we place a premium on giving our children a good education so they are setup to succeed in life. Any society with even a modicum of common sense would do so because children are literally our future.
