    Yes, but probably not for the same reason you want to get rid of it. By the way, you did note how well America actually does in public education, correct? Also remember that success is after removing students who attend a private school, students who usually are more motivated for educational success.


    No you are confusing me with someone else, IMO our public school system is a failure. I would be interested to know why you would be for abolishing the DOE though.

    Public schools are not Socialism, it is just an element of social infrastructure. Only Socialists and Conservatives claim that public schools is Socialism for propagandist assertions.

    Intelligence and knowledge are two completely separate things. But if I were to send my child to the school where I work (which is a district of roughly 850 students K-12 in a town of a little over 4000 people), and my child worked hard to become educated, they would emerge educated and ready for their next step in life.

    People can call you whatever they like, it won't change the fact you are correct.

    And I provided evidence to you which suggests it is not. Which is why I asked if you had read it.

    It's not because of the money, but rather because the idea of a "one size fits all" education is silly. What needs to be learned in Washington DC doesn't come close to what needs to be learned in an area like mine. The basics need to be taught, obviously, but many students where I live will benefit far more from learning about agriculture than learning why you shouldn't end a sentence with a preposition or how to properly cite sources (especially since both of those seem to change).

    The money is not the problem. Providing a free and reduced lunch to poor students is a tremendous thing. Being able to purchase new technology for classrooms is wonderful. Having money to specialize education for special needs students is great. But federal programs like No Child Left Behind have been proven to be terrible.

    I went to public school (the same one at which I now work). I did so well colleges were offering to pay me to attend. I chose a local 4 year university because it has a great area reputation for producing teachers, and I graduated having made money from attending college, on the back of only two scholarships.

    Those who do not succeed in public education will usually fail for reasons other than the public education system itself.
