Me Culture

America’s ‘culture of me’ has got to change:

...So what is this “culture of me”? It is a culture in which citizens exalt their own rights and privileges above all other concerns, even the public good, even the lives of school children. It is a culture of complete hypocrisy, one in which a person can, on the one hand, admit that teachers are underpaid, while on the other hand fail to support even one pro-education referendum if it raises their taxes by one thin dime. We say we want quality education, but when it comes right down to it, we are not willing to pay for it. In fact, we are more likely to blame the teachers if schools in our area are not performing up to standards, rather than looking at the lack of funding as a probable cause...
