    Guess your parents never taught you about empathy or morality....

    What happened to your 94% anyway?

    The government does by allowing themselves to be bought.

    The public does by continuing a system of representation that simply does not work, or represent them.

    The schools are overburdened and underfunded so no not really. Although private schools by their very existence do by providing alternatives for the wealthy. If all kids went to public school, the system would be reformed over night...
    1) the federal government has no business being involved in education other than that military academies

    2) states can fund education in their jurisdiction as they see fit. Its normally done at a local level meaning affluent communities willing to fund their schools have better schools than poor areas. People with children often sacrifice and work hard to afford homes in areas with top public schools

    and I don't have a problem with that at all

    A extreme lack of social morality from ppl like you.

    And my whole point was that even a child that takes education seriously still won't get a proper one... So I dunno what your talking about their...

    Yes their parents are responsible to an extent, but at the same time their parents were likely victims of the same system.

    I'm done with your lack of empathy now.

    What about those that are incapable of doing so? Why should their kids be punished?

    The fed certainly be involved in education. Its the private sector that should not be allowed in.

    And that's not true I live in Philadelphia we have some of the richest ppl in the country loving here, along with very poor ones. The rich send their kids o privates, everybody else moves to the burbs or is screwed if they cannot afford to.

    You mean that reference that I provided? That one? Maybe you're unaware that there are these things called BOOKS?

    You liberals, geez...
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Run for the hills! It's safer than actually having to think.

    what part of the constitution actually gives the federal government that power?

    the rich who live in the city limits pay for the schools of the poor.

    It's much easier than actually looking up the data. Whatever, you're just a liberal, I expect as much from you.

    Where do you get the idea the private sector shouldn't be allowed in? When in history has the private sector failed at providing education? If anything history tells us the dangers of public education and why a government monopoly in education is the worst of all monopolies.

    And that's not true I live in Philadelphia we have some of the richest ppl in the country loving here, along with very poor ones. The rich send their kids o privates, everybody else moves to the burbs or is screwed if they cannot afford to.
    Private schools are not just for the rich even today.
