A decline in standardized test scores is but the most recent indicator that American education is in trouble.One reason for the crisis is that present mandatory-attendance laws force many to attend school who have no wish to be there. Such children have little desire to learn and are so antagonistic to school that neither they nor more highly motivated students receive the quality education that is the birthright of every American.
The solution to this problem is simple: Abolish compulsory-attendance laws and allow only those who are committed to getting an education to attend.This will not end public education. Contrary to conventional belief, legislators enacted compulsory-attendance laws to legalize what already existed. William Landes and Lewis Solomon, economists, found little evidence that mandatory-attendance laws increased the number of children in school. They found, too, that school systems have never effectively enforced such laws, usually because of the expense involved.

Tests showed that volunteers fed on butter containing 50 grams of garlic oil had a cholesterol level considerably lower than that of a control group fed on butter without garlic. In another experiment, patients ate three grams of raw garlic a day. After four weeks their cholesterol level fell markedly. According to Professor Renter, garlic not only drives out unwanted fats in the blood. Tests indicated that the herb also kills other bacteria, among them those causing diphtheria and tuberculosis. Professor Reuter said garlic was in some cases more effective than penicillin. To get the full benefit. you must use fresh garlic.
