    "I like public school."

    Where'd you learn to like public school?

    "...Uh... Public school."

    The reverse argument works as well, either way; most people just hate school, private vs. public or classroom vs. home is just... Redundant. At least, in my opinion. Yet even I can be redundant at times - public school sucks, never go to it... Never send your children to them unless you secretly hate them.

    We don't need no education.
    We don't need no thought control.
    No dark sarcasm in the classroom.
    Teacher, leave those kids alone.
    Hey, Teacher, leave those kids alone!

    Public education is critical to the development of the economy and society. The more educated a society, the better. There aren't many who say "Look at that guy. It's a good thing he didn't get much education."

    Now, the distribution of public education is a different matter.

    I began my school "career" way back in 1957. Things have taken a real turn since then. It used to be you could get a decent education in this country. These days all you tend to get in school is some liberal teacher's opinion of the way the world ought to be, birth control and gay/lesbian orientation classes, and anything and everything except for the 3 R's. We are dumbing down our kids and not holding teachers accountable for doing good work. Our parents are also not paying any attention to the kids in school and are using the education system more as a day care center than a place of learning. Our school system is pretty sad... We're falling way behind the rest of the world. But that's ok. Soon we will be one of the most educated Third World Countries!

    I am so glad I have the summer off. I sure get tired making sure my students are locked and loaded, and teaching them the joys of homosexual sex. Plus, making sure all the girls birth control pills are up to date, and the boys have plenty of condoms stocked up. Then of course, there are my lesson plans, it's not easy brainwashing these kids for the indoctrination of Marxism.


    Every teachers main plan, from the very start, is to turn the students into sheep, to get ready for the New World Order, since the USA is turning into a Third World Country.

    I have a child in public school and a child in private school and I can't say that I see a real difference. I'm sure that my five year old son received more attention because his class size was 10 student including him. He went from not being able to read at all to reading on a third grade level in one school year. I'm debating whether to send my daughter to private school next year.
