    Also, if your kid can't read write or do math It's your fault as a parent. Not the teachers or some union. It's called personal responsibility.
    As I wrote, if the only game it town isn't teaching, how is that the parents, or the students responsibility?

    Do homework get a tutor run for school board. Get involved.

    Also please show a school where a kid has no opportunity to learn.

    Vouchers. End of story. After that, you have a point.

    The hyperbole of "no opportunity" doesn't cut it.

    Vouchers don't help lazy. If parent and kid don't care at public school why should we pay for private?

    I am for vouchers only for the hard workers or disabled.

    Then we are on the same page. Vouchers don't have to be for a private school. They can be for a public school the parents prefer.

    After that, if you have lazy students, and disinterested parents, they can let the failed schools babysit the kids into oblivion.

    no, it is not socialism. Who cares who starts a school as long as it conforms with the laws in the US. Also, non public schools have to be financially supported if they need to be supported as long as the schools are not commercial enterprises or are private schools that have high entrance fees in order to keep the school exclusive.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    Good.
    But the conservatives wish to do away with this...
    Then as statistical data is collected, over time, say ten years, one would know which states have the best approach and which concepts do not work..
    Are the states cooperating ?

    Form of socialism, in that the means of production are owned by the people via the democratically elected government, sure.

    It's not clear if you're saying this is good or bad or neither.
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.
