This young lady has got it.
Yeah, that pretty much covers it.
Two boys were competing to be valedictorian when I was in high school. One of them got a B in math senior year. He cried in class. I almost started laughing. Then I though about the hundreds of hours of idiotic busy work he must have done to get straight A's in EVERYTHING.
I got straight D's in religion freshman year. I wasn't about to do those STUPID homework assignments.
I wonder how closely either of you watched the video? It wasn't a condemnation of public schools, it was a condemnation of compulsory education. Her stance is that nobody should go to any school if they don't want to.
Do you agree?
They clearly agree that people shouldn't be educated. No?
If they agree with what she's saying they do....
It is obvious that AUTHORITARIANS don't know how to listen.
I didn't go to public schools. The grade schools are designed to kill curiosity. If it was done right there wouldn't be a problem. But with computers and the internet how necessary are the schools? The clowns that call themselves educators mostly get in the way and don't point out what is important.
Why is Shakespeare more important than double-entry accounting? If accounting had been mandatory in the schools for the last 50 years then would the economy be in the current state?
yeah, that's why you go on to show that he's 100% right in his assessment.
Parents should be able to send their child to any public school they want. Schools will then compete for students, because they only get paid for each child occupying a seat, quality of education will rise as a result.
I too agree with School Choice. Public schools should be allowed to choose who they will accept and who they will not accept or kick out...just like private schools.
except that isn't the idea of public schools...
we have that in nyc with regard to various programs. the G&T and specialized programs are very competative... but you still always have the right to go to your zoned school.
