    the idealism is replaced with realism

    perfect example....taxes

    we know that taxes have to be paid

    but how much, how they are spent, and who participates are some of the sticking points

    we look at government, and again the same things

    how much, how much power, whether federal or state level controlled....all sticking points

    If You Are Not a Liberal at 25, You Have No Heart. If You Are Not a Conservative at 35 You Have No Brain

    again, idealism versus reality....at least that is my take
    If only the voting age was 35.

    I would say yes. Conservatives seem less inclined to go into that line of work. If conservatives think the education field is too liberal maybe more of them should go into the field. Probably not enough money in it, though.

    I bet those areas where the school system is run by conservatives are dragging the national average down. Imagine where Texas would rank on this table...

    Yes and no. School performance is a reflection of numerous factors-political ideology being only one of them.

    Keep in mind that D.C., fairly liberal in its own right, is one of the worst districts in both general and special education.

    However the schools did have a greater number of like-minded Leftist morons teaching their ideology. Many of those could no longer afford the urban scene and forced to the 'burbs'.

    Do you mind me asking where you went to schools and where you are now? PM if you like.
    My early childhood was in Wales actually, so not here in the US, but from about just before middle school on I went to school here in Florida, a mixture of public and private since kindergarten. Probably half of my education was private and the other half public. Currently I attend a private university in Florida.

    I guess my question is what exactly is the forced or coerced liberal education that people seem to assume is in the system?

    It varies but, what most would consider Leftist propaganda like abortion rights, SSM, tolerance for sinful acts while denying faith based ones. Pushing the global warming scare and evolution as absolutes.
    The worse of all is using any of this as a wedge between the students and their parent and family. That's where it gets really sick.

    I'm an American, dude. So yes, I do. I was in that sad excuse of an educational system. There's a whole world, you know, and some of us Americans go other places.

    But it's not like anyone really needs to have been in the American education system to see how backwards it is. All you have to do is look at America's educational ranking compared to other developed nations, or the way adult Americans (fail to) answer questions like, "How are babies made?" It's embarrassing.

    And where do the PC police come from, with their left-wing excessive PC foolishness?

    Perhaps where it was and how interested you were in learning could be part of the problem

    I learned what was taught without the benefit of a computer.
