    You should work on making what you write clearer. ric27 made two distinct statements, one about private schools and one about schools which offer the IB.

That requires first that the voucher be universal, available to all who are now entitled to send their children to government schools and second that the voucher, though less than the government now spends per pupil on education, be large enough to cover the costs of a private profit-making school offering a high-quality education. If that is achieved there will in addition be a substantial number of families that will be willing and able to extend or strengthen the voucher in order to get an even higher quality of education.

    Introducing something new in the luxury product will soon spread to the basic product.

That fact might manifest itself in higher unemployment rates for your specific group than others...
    Once you eliminate a competitive atmosphere, and giving everyone a trophy just for trying, you are killing our society's sense of achievement or the importance associated with doing well. it creates a lax atmosphere that allows students to coast and get by on just doing a bare minnimum - and worse, a sense of entitlement that is not earned.

    End result - mediocre ability or performance

    ... *sigh*....

    White Unemployment still highest in 27 years.

    I fail to see the significance of the mentioning of race.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Have you been living in a cave or something? If NYC was blown off the face of the earth, newspaper headlines would scream "Minorities and Women hit the hardest."

    Words cannot do justice to the level of pure dishonesty it took to write such a ridiculous statement in a discussion about government regulation.

    true, many of the teachers at my son's school (where I graduated-it has produced three Rhodes scholars and dozens upon dozes of Ivy League Honors or higher graduates) could not teach in the public schools because they don't have Masters in education degrees. Rather they have masters or doctorates in stuff like English Literature, american History, Biology, Chemistry, etc

    which is why the kids from that school are consistently winning all sorts of state competitions in academic subjects even though the teachers aren't qualified according to the public sector teachers' unions

    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.


    But, first, we need to actually recover. So far, the unemployment rate has gone up since Obama took office.

    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?
    That's right and up til now, his policies and executive orders have only succeeded in discouraging job creation.

    I assume you know abut the Gibson's guitar debacle, and the piano importer getting fined $15,000 for importing old pianos, but here are a few more.

    The point about the Jews was a good one, by the way, and Communism would have served as a good example as well. Too much government power and control is something that should be fought against at all points, in order that all people remain free.

    Anyway, here are a few more examples of government regulation.
