    Here's a clue for you: your reasoning is simplistic at best. You don't get that there's a lot more factors than just the personal bugaboos you insist upon.

    First off, I don't know if you've noticed, but there's a LOT more to learn today than there was thirty, forty years ago. Are you going to blame that on the liberals and teachers unions

    Second, hours have been cut at every single school I've sent my kids to has had to cut hours due to budget restraints. I guess this is because of the teachers unions too.

    Third, there's no reason for children in the modern age to have a summer break - such was implemented for the sake of gathering crops. As a result of summer breaks, the first month or so of every school year is spent reteaching the kids what they forgot over the summer.

    Fourth, schools are violent, thanks to drugs from the failed 'War on drugs' (where there's plenty of blame to go around for everyone) and the guns that kids bring to school (thanks a lot, conservatives) - I sent my youngest son to school overseas because there were several kids that were bringing guns to school.

    Fifth - and AGAIN - you get what you pay for. If you pay crap wages to teachers, you'll get crap for teachers. I'd dearly love to teach, too, but I wouldn't be able to give my family the kind of life they have now if I were a teacher. So when you cut the pay for teachers even more, then all you're doing is cutting the quality, too.
    Yeah you get what you pay for and teachers unions are being paid more than those teachers in private schools, yet public school teacher unions are useless. Period. Check the facts. Compare the cost of public teacher union schools and their results vs private schools and their results. Public school performance suck and you wonder why Obama and the Hollywood elite send their kids to private schools. It's all about private schools teach kids rather than public teacher unions getting their union paycheck. Do your homework and you will find a union teacher is paid more than a private school teacher yet with less results. Why because the union teacher could care less about teaching a kid, they just want their paycheck and benefits. It's all about them not the kids.

    Generalize much? One of the reasons private schools have better scores is they can dump students. If a stundent in a private school adversely effects their scores they boot him and then he has to go to public school. There are many other reasons, but all the public school teachers are not useless and could care less. I remember back in the day REpubs were very pro education, then they found out some teachers are in unions. Now education is overrated and teachers make too much and are worthless. You really ought to check the facts.

    You do realize ya liberals have pretty much destroyed federalism?

    Because the southern states have a higher percentage of black Americans, 71% who are born out of wedlock as compared to 24% when "The Great Society" programs began. The stats are clear our prisons and welfare rolls consist primarily of bastards. The increase in bastards is the direct result of liberal policies.

    Newsflash: It ain't conservatives filling up our prisons.


    The liberals succeeded in doing what slavery and Jim Crow could not do; practically destroying the black family. Thanks a lot, liberals.

    I have checked the facts, I suggest you do the same. Teachers union public schools suck. That is a fact. If you are so supportive of Union teachers then why not allow the public decide where they want to send their child. A voucher system? Let the public decide, but you would not allow that.

    It is interesting that ALL of the 10 best educated states are Blue or Purple and 9 of the 10 least educated states are Red (Nevada, a purple state, being the exception)...

    Of course, the truth is Democrats overwhelmingly win the vote of those without a high school education.
