    I'll play the part of a Liberal here. "Massive Paper-Work"? Where's your "feelings" for the Trees? "Your Son belongs to the Collective", Liberals worry about the Trees.

    And by "reason", you mean stereotype an entire group of people just because you disagree with them. Flawless logic, sir.

    Just because something is wide-spread through government force doesn't mean it is good. It's kind of like claiming that the conquests of Christian or Islamic empires prove the validity of their religions. Might (i.e. aggression) does not make right!

    It has been empirically shown, however, that private schools provide greater quality and value than public schools, and that home-schooled students perform better on standardized tests, but the issue of freedom is even more important.

    May be true where you live, but where I live, the publicly-schooled students run laps around privately-schooled and home-schooled students when it comes to test scores. This also seems to be true in past places I have lived.

    I have not encountered any school that has done something like this without the expressed consent of the parents.

    You cannot tell me that a parent that spends say $25 on a lunch pail for their kid is going to be required to place it in a pile and then have their own kid wind up with a $5 lunch pail instead.

    Not really. You did elude to the fact that this redistribution of school supplies apparently happens more often than most parents are led to believe.

    I don't necessarily agree with it completely, but it happens whether we know of it happening directly or indirectly. For example, at my daughter's elementary school we buy extra school supplies for both our child and our child's class. The teacher(s) explain to us every year about school budget cuts and how they aren't able to buy everything their class needs to get through the entire school year. So, we buy extra consumable stuff (i.e., pencils, glue, tissues, hand sanitizer, etc.) for the kids so that as they run out of their own the teacher knows there is still more available should the child need it immediately.

    Now, if it's school policy and the parents know this beforehand, it shouldn't be a problem. But if it's not and the teachers just do it and expect everyone - students and parents - to just shut up and take it, then that's wrong and the parents need to step up and hold the school (or the school system) accountable and stop this practise.

    Prove it. I have never yet seen or heard about any state-level comparison where private schooled and homeschooled children did not come out ahead academically.

    I suppose Podunk USA with one public school and one private school might come out that way on a county-level, but on a larger scale than that I'd have to see the proof.
