I about vomit any time I hear someone talk about "investing in our children" or similar emotional marketing gimicks around Education funding. First off, I don't have any children, so by "our children" you mean your children that you want everyone else to pay for. Well we're tired of supporting this bloated, archaic beauracracy that doesn't produce results, is nothing but government daycare. And yes, teachers are overpaid.

Ignorance is more costly. If you don't have to worry about employing people, maybe that is of no importance to you.

All public funding is the result of an armed robbery.

So yes, abolish public schools but don't stop there.

China would love that. Americans could be their servants. It would be the only job they'd be qualified for.

In other words, parents should homeschool their kids. If parents work, they can do it after they get home from work. Or retired grandparents or other relatives and available friends could educate them during the day. There are private schools as well, if parents can afford it.

The South produced 4 million bales of cotton in 1860 so something (slavery) was being done right.
