A video showcasing a school in Indiana has gone viral. It highlights a large, beautiful, clean, safe-looking high school called “Carmel High.”
Several Carmel students take us on a tour of their lovely high school, which includes a “fresh market” cafeteria, massive pool, a state of the art gym, in-house radio station, and a yearbook facility that makes the New York Times look mediocre.
This tour of Carmel High School is going viral on Tik Tok.

As you watched that video, you likely noticed how everything looked so pristine. There’s no graffiti on the walls, no dilapidated lockers and no litter to be found. And that’s actually quite impressive when you consider that more than five thousand students attend Carmel. It looks like the perfect place to get a great education.
Internet losers are apoplectic, and green with envy, predictably:
Probably the craziest thing about this video is people saying "god, I hate rich kids" but this is a public school that spends $9K per student
Baltimore spends $16K per student and that gets them pretty much nothing but failing students https://t.co/27um8fNk9Z

So, why all the sudden fuss about this particular school? Well, the kicker to the story is that this school manages to be big, beautiful, and successful even though they only spend $9,629 per student. And honestly, it looks as if they spend twice that amount.
It’s remarkable that Carmel successfully created a pristine and safe environment for kids to learn and keep their bodies toned and healthy, and did it all for less than the US average cost per student.
Take a look at this map. It shows the average cost per student in each state:
Think about this: in liberal-run D.C., the average cost per student is a whopping $22,800. Yet even so, students attending these schools are struggling to learn the basics.
Essentially, D.C. schools are churning out functioning illiterates.
But how can that happen with such a large per-student budgets? Where is the money going? These are good questions and parents should demand answers.
D.C. student’s scores in reading and math are plummeting despite insanely large school budgets.
Students in third through eighth grades, as well as high school students, took assessments in the spring for the first time in two years. The Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) on Friday released the results, which show declines in math and reading across the board.
“We saw declines across all eight wards, and we saw more declines in the elementary school grades than we did in the higher grades,” D.C. Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Christina Grant said.
Grant said math scores dropped significantly from 31% of students testing at grade level in 2019 to 19% testing at grade level in 2022.
In Math, 70% of white students tested at grade level, however, that percentage plummets to 17% among Hispanc students and 9% for African American students.
For reading, 20% of African American students tested at their respective grade levels, while 31% of Hispanic students and 79% of white students tested at grade level.
However, if you think things are bad in D.C., they’re even worse in Baltimore. The city is spending approximately $16K per pupil, yet their students can’t do basic math. In what can only be called an apocalyptic failure, there are zero students within 23 different school districts across the city of Baltimore who are “proficient” in math.
None, nada, zilch.
Professors and political commentators expressed shock at the news and called for more freedom to allow parents to find better schools for their children.
George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley argued on Twitter that teachers are treating students less like human beings and more like captive listeners. “Teachers and boards are killing the institution of public education by treating children and parents more like captives than consumers. That cannot continue much longer before parents look for alternatives.”
“This is a scandal,” former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted.
Parents must demand an audit so they can see where the money is going, because clearly it’s not being spent to properly educate their kids.
Speaking of the kids, many US schools have turned into war zones. In some cases, you’d be safer walking the streets of Baghdad than you would walking the halls of certain US schools. This latest “danger” has nothing to do with “mass shooters.” This is about extremely violent students who beat their fellow classmates to a bloody pulp, like it’s no big deal…
It seems as if these attacks are happening more frequently. Perhaps it’s the social media-driven omnipresence of these fight videos, but they’re popping up everywhere.
In the video below, the victim got lucky. Remarkably, this young man was somehow able to fight off a mob of 20 teens who were viciously attacking him.

But most kids aren’t so fortunate. This poor girl was clobbered inside the supposed “safety” of her classroom:

Sadly, these “brawls” are so common place now, that teachers and students seem totally unfazed.

These two school kids destroyed the classroom while they fought. This clip is reminiscent of an old western movie, where the saloon furniture is obliterated during a fight:

Unfortunately, there’s an endless buffet of these videos online because vicious fighting has become the common and seemingly acceptable response to “problem solving” in many schools. American parents must be worried sick sending their kids off to these mini war zones every day; hoping and praying they return home in one piece.
But what’s the alternative for these concerned parents? Home schooling?
Sure, that sounds great, but sadly, it’s not a viable alternative for many people.
Yes, that would be ideal, but not everybody can afford the tuition.
The only way the “fighting” and lack of education improves is if parents get more involved in school, and hold teachers, administrators, and their children accountable for every action. In the meantime, school officials all across the country should look at Carmel and copy their blueprint. They appear to have found the “magic” formula for success.
