    Charter schools want Public School money but not the Public School students. How are the ‘elite’ going to educate their kids otherwise? Tax breaks? Their own money?

    I graduated high school along side someone who couldn’t name all 7 continents. I can just imagine the quality of students they’re cranking out now.

    “The majority of todays kids can barely read, don’t understand the principles of math because calculators do the hard part and “learn” the lesson that they don’t have to actually show up in life.”

    To my knowledge, the slide in education started in the early to mid ‘70s when they decided to change the subject matter and teaching methodology. This was intended to improve education.

    When it was finally realized that what they were doing wasn’t working, Instead of reverting to what had worked, they decided to change things again to improve education. Over the ensuing years, (goto the beginning of this paragraph).

    Umm….. It’s funny that libs always refer to taxpayers hard-earned money as “Public funds”.
    I think a parent should allowed to use that $8000 or so a year to whatever school is providing the best education.
    I can tell you that around here and most of America, public schools are not anywhere close in quality as private schools.
    If they were, Obama and all the other rich politicians would have their kids in public schools.

    “That, of course, was BEFORE the nuts, loose screws, and other crazies decided to teach “creation science, and flat earth…”

    The arguments you use in your post seem to me to be self defeating. Most of the people that made the space program work were born within the date range of the twenty’s and early forty’s. Up until the late sixties and early seventy’s prayer and patriotism were prevalent in schools. Since then, innumerable law suits have removed almost all religion from schools and public property, accompanied by a decline in observed patriotism.

    Although there have been multitudinous attempts at putting religious educational subjects back in the schools as religious teachings, I have heard of none that survived a Constitutional challenge.
