151. The basics upon which more complex subjects are explored has remained the same since before Plato.
If a person has a solid foundation they will be able with proper guidance be able to explore more complex subjects. There seems to be a problem with retaining teachers with advanced degrees in math and the sciences for a number of reasons primary of which is pay.

From what I have seen the major problem is the lack of parental involvement. Not only in regard to making sure their child is putting forth the effort, but also not supporting the teachers who have to put up with their unruly little monsters. I a couple of life time friends who are retired teahers and a common complaint was that if they had a discipline problem with a student and they notified the parents that in far too many cases the parent would become defensive and end up blaming the teacher for the kid's lousy behavior.
