    a school is not like a corporation. a corporation can discontinue a poorly performing product; schools cannot and should not. teaching to the test for merit pay will not result in better students; it will result in teachers who don't want to take on the students who need the most help.
    If one cannot afford the public sector union teachers then fire them. Close down schools. Consolidate. Privatize. Live within your means. Be adults.

    I know that's the way you guys want it. Take education away from the poor, too. That way, they'll stay that way. It's already been done to college, why not elementary school, too!

    That way we can consolidate the wealth even further until we become more like Namibia and less like Jamaica (whose GINI score is almost the same as ours). God knows we don't want to be like other developed nations (such as Denmark, Japan, the Czech Republic - nations that actually have something resembling parity.

    When did anarchy become so popular here? I swear it's like Lord of the Flies is starting to become a parable for this country.

    I agree with you... I think they should have kicked people off of welfare or something first

    Meanwhile the taxpayers in Milwaukee Wisconsin appear to have spent well over 1.5 billion on the war in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001.

    Sorry to all the Wisconsin residents, but it seems there are more important things to spend the money on besides you and your children.

Get rid of free breakfast and lunch for kids already on food stamps-- make their parents feed them, which we pay them to do-- with food stamps. And can the free after school programs, too. Let their parents take care of them, like the rest of us not on welfare do. Deal with it. No more free stuff.
    Hey, I'm in Arizona, what can I say?
    I think your just assuming things unless you have really looked at the budget yourself. We really have no idea how much that stuff costs in comparison to wages for teachers, utilities, other labor wages, fuel costs to run buses, etc.

    Nobody would disagree with that. What I really despise is that we have all these dumb ass politicians, many of whom have little to no education in economics, leading this discussion. It's basically the blind and ignorant leading the blind and ignorant.

    They would be much better off with hiring classroom proctors to oversee the children. They watch DVD's of the course material and take tests, the ones who score high enough on the aptitude test, get the opportunity for a charter schools and a real education. This way we don't pay for kids who won't try with disengaged parents who simply don't care..
