    How about parents taking responsibility for educating their own kids, instead of looking to government to wipe their butt for them?

    Why should I have to pay for the education of a kid in another state? You won't find that kind of thinking in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution. Is personal responsibility a bad thing with you? What is with the sarcasm?

    Is this what bothers you?

    You don't think parents should be able to chose which school their child attends?

    Tell me then, what are your ideas on how we can change the education system in this country.

    Actually, unless parents are paying for a private education, children should be required to attend the schools in the area they live in. Much like I'm required to pay a school tax when I don't even have kids just because I live here.

    My god she rambles. She needs to get a better editor. But I'm amazed that she's on-board with a (gasp) Conservative idea:

    As long as private schools are excluded, I agree.
