    Santorum Bashes Public Schools, Says They're Stuck In Factory Era

    By Mitchell Landsberg February 18, 2012

    Reporting from Columbus, Ohio— Republican GOP hopeful Rick Santorum may be the most prominent homeschooler in America. So it might not have been surprising that, on Saturday, he told a conservative Christian audience that he intended to homeschool his children in the White House.

    In his remarks to the Ohio Christian Alliance, however, Santorum went further, seeming to attack the very idea of public education.

    In the nation’s past, he said, “Most presidents homeschooled their children in the White House.… Parents educated their children because it was their responsibility.”

    “Yes, the government can help,” he continued, “but the idea that the federal government should be running schools, frankly much less that the state government should be running schools, is anachronistic.”

    He is so fucking right! Public schools force our children to learn agenda of the federal government, instead of learning how to think. Santorum is right!

    What has the federal government done for education? We have a test that gets watered down all the time and still poor performances. Face it schools are being used as social engineering devices. Too many parents think it is someone else's job to teach these days.

    And you are as dumb as the public school system sought out to make you. Sad, really.

    He's close...Government schools are at the point to where they prepare you to be good workers...and good Government subjects.

    Public schools have the bar so low that viruses would have a dificult time sliding through. And, they're becoming worse.

    Ah, yes, public schools, the classic whipping boy of the right; the horrible disincentive to personal responsibility and hated remnant of America’s quasi-socialist past.

    Santorum’s puling out all the stops and going full-blown RWNJ
