In most cases, the parents then spend even more to cover the difference between the private school and the public. This goes across all racial lines and is true for most demographics.

    Leftist mindset is authoritarian and wants a centralized educational standard with their textbooks and causes, forced busing (though I believe that is mostly in the past now), etc. Thats totally unacceptable to me
    I don't have kids. I want my tax money back that's being spent on these schools if parents can get it back. Seems more than fair.

    An observation....

    Private schools tend to have a very similar and traditional curriculum (many still require Latin and one other foreign language) and some how those kids do as well, or better, than some of their global counterparts on exams. Schools that have the IB program produce very strong, well-rounded students. What are they doing that is so successful?....what?

    Robust teacher qualifications... mostly private international schools as institutions at profit (I think) or prestigious state schools geared towards international students.

    Do you think we could make a major improvement in our educational system is through privatization to the point at which a substantial fraction of all educational services is rendered to individuals by private enterprises?

    Why or why not?

    I'm not understanding what question you think you're answering. Private schools have laxer teacher qualification standards than public schools.

    Well, there are more White people than there are Black people in America ... and a hefty chunk of White people are unemployed. More than 'usual' anyway.. so it would only stand to reason that in the same crappy job market, a hefty chunk of Black people would be unemployed. More than 'usual', anyway.

    Right now there are "more cars than road" when it comes to jobs, that's just the way it is.. Recovery from a blow like the two we just took in 2001 and 2008 is going to be slow. Thats just basic common sense.

    The POTUS CANNOT create jobs, he can only encourage, suggest and recommend ways to create jobs. It's the GOP protected "rich" who swear up and down they are the "job creators". So, they should get busy "creating jobs", dont you think?
    Seems rather odd that so many people are mad at the POTUS for the lack of jobs - though he has no power to 'create' jobs - but say nothing to, or about the actual "job creators" who havent created a single job at all.


    Either we have to allow the wealthy huge tax breaks so they can "create jobs" or we blame it all on Obama. So, which is it? Obama's fault or the wealthy "job creators" fault there are no jobs?

    A) This statement likely functions under the assumption that a private enterprise is inherently better at educating than a public one or even possibly that the accomplishment of a 'substantial' ratio of private schooling would be a fundamentally proper goal in and of itself.

    I issue this: If there is an index of private vs public schooling quality many Northern Virginia public schools would be near the top of that list.

    By which I mean to say... no... I dont think we could make enough improvement via privatization that would be suitable to society as a whole because of complications due to wealth disparity.

    I mean if it worked... I'd be happy with that. I doubt it could ever work though. Are there any economically developed nations that have substantial portions of all educational services as private?

    Kids in europe get payed to go to college

    A question prompted by your question: if we privatize schools, who would fund the vouchers?

    Obama's fault. His Keystone Kops style of bumbling governance has created a depressed environment for job creators because Obama keeps raising the costs of job creation with his regulatory antics and the uncertainty he creates with his proposals.
