All the crazy MAGA QANON hate points to a failure of our public education

Do public high schools still teach civics classes? Is there a focus on critical thinking? Do they offer debate clubs that foster civility and reasoned argument. Do they teach and foster self-discipline over anger and frustration? Do all the sports programs strongly emphasize honor, non-cheating, and good sportsmanship for winners and losers alike? I'm 75, and these were values that were taught when I was in high school. My Dad was a Dallas cop, and no way would he have condoned breaking into someone's house and whacking an old man in the head with a hammer.
