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?
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?

Silly poor people
Tax cuts are for the rich!
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?
