    So..if you are not intelligent..but your parent's have enough money to send you to a private school...

    Will they make dumb asses clever?..

    Or will they succeed in life because they have attended an impressive school.or their father's networking?

    Surely not everyone who has access to infinite parental funds...is a bloody genius??

    But others??...weell...

    Whatever floats your boat..

    I don't think there's a lot of snitching ... there are moderators who also post and they're the ones that pull the trigger mainly, but I could be wrong aout that ... hopefully posters, including poster/moderators, will err on the side of freedom of speech ...

    We just need to make the weaker schools better, perhaps starting with building more classrooms than prison cells and paying people to whom we entrust the things we love most in this world -- our children -- much more than we do ... Lebron James makes in a day roughly what a teacher makes in a year ... it will take a teacher roughly 365 years to make what he makes in one year ... I know why gets what he gets, but come on, there's something wrong with this picture, don't you think? ... (And please, no "But can these teachers dunk and hit a 15-foot jumper with someone hanging on them?")

    Re: Are public schools socialism?

    I'm a public school teacher. I LOVE teaching kids to learn to read and write. However, I cannot see myself doing this for the rest of my life. And by "this" I mean .... I spend A LOT of my time "testing" kids. Public teachers are now testing, tracking, testing, tracking, testing, tracking....and somewhere in there....teaching. It's WAY too much needless paperwork and busywork and not near enough time actually teaching. Not to mention the constant interruptions during the day....

    I found this image the other day:

    Are public schools socialism?-553177_10151574732208708_1769920108_n-jpg

    I totally agree. But..... you're not allowed to do that in a public school. You're supposed to follow your lesson plans (and they'd BETTER be aligned to Common Core or you're in trouble). You cannot deviate from them at all or you'll never get through the curriculum for the year. It's push, push, push, test, test, test, worksheet, worksheet, worksheet, track, track, track... Not much time for the "fun" of learning. *sigh*

    I agree, unfortunately states cannot afford to do so because of the feds. Elimination of estate taxes will actually hurt states more because those are largely pass through to the state of the decedent taxes, but otherwise the feds suck up the tax dollars to the tipping point so states cannot pile on.
