Finally, someone who gets it. Almost.
a child’s education is often determined by chance, not choice.
I have to disagree here. The child doesn’t get to choose, but the parents do. Even when it comes to public schools, the parents decide what city/school district to live in. I’m sure we all know someone that has moved so their kids could be in a "better" school district.
The panacea to public education’s deficiencies typically has been and remains more money. The Census Bureau reports that spending per pupil increased from $6,000 in 1996 to over $9,000 in 2005 . . .
All it takes is one homeschooler to disprove the "we need more money" theory. Oh, what I’d do with $6,000 per pupil!
Education dollars must be attached to students so their parents can use those funds as they see fit . . .
Our education system as we know it needs to totally be scrapped.
Choices about a child’s education should be the right and responsibility of parents.
It should be, and it is. Unfortunately, human nature is to take the easy way out and then complain about it.
