Scarecrow Akhbar said:If you paid attention, you would have seen that Bush said that the war in Iraq was necessary for a dozen different reasons. That was because he couldn't name the primary reason without all the surrender monkeys having a hissy fit. The primary reason was that it was time to get the pawns out of the center of board so the queen could have free room to move in all directions. We didn't enter Iraq for a lie. We entered Iraq for reasons not stated
They sure would have a hissy fit. Some of us disagree with imperialism. You may like it but it's not our job in a place that couldn't get more different our own country. Also don't you think we should find Osama? 'cuz I sure do. I knew some of those people in the towers and 5 years is too long to let him run loose in the jungle (or dessert) like the chimpanzee he is. We seem to have forgotton that he's still out there and decided that some oil rich nation called Iraq, with no Al Queda or Osama connections, is a more important use of our military power than finding the murderer of the greatest amount of Americans on our home soil.
The reason the schools systems don't work is even simpler than that. The nationalized school system violates that basic premise of federalism. The central authority of Washington prevents the several states from determining the best methods of teaching their students. Instead, methods that don't work are forced on everyone from the very highest levels.
The requirements don't need to be extremely complicated. They just have to say that the students need to learn at least this, this, and this, and the states can figure out which way they want to teach these standards.
[/QUOTE]Schools A, B, and C should be using their own money, and then the parents would be watching how it's spent. Since the parents in Arkansas are spending money from California, what do they care? And, nice, you didn't mention that most money is squandered on union goon salaries, and they NEVER fix bathrooms because broken bathrooms are an excellent way to make stupid parents support yet another bond issue.
Teachers deserve to be paid alot. Kids are rowdy and especially in public schools. When you have to teach a class of 40 kids who really don't care, a small salary isn't going to cut it.
I'm talking about the government giving schools A, B, C money for text books and education. The point I was making is that schools will be completely different and some schools will be better than others.
I mention the unions in the next paragraph. They need to be controlled more atleast in this education.
Public education will be fixed when the public no longer has anything to do with education.
This is a very ignorant statement. Public in this nation may not be as good as private but it covers more people than private does. Only a select lucky few are able to afford private education. Once people's ability to learn and be educated is in if they have money or not we have come to a sad point in society.
When people are in general judged by their money rather than they're character and people have lost all sense of social equality and justice, we will have reached a sad point in time.
That ain't gonna happen. Not in the real world.
That's an easy way to get your self out of writing a long explanation. I guess since scarecrow says it's not going to happen its not.
