There’s the picture. Here’s my rant . . .
Where is the “right” to an education mentioned in the United States Constitution? By the same token, under what authority did Uncle Sam establish a Department of Education?
Don’t get me wrong: I believe all children should get an education. A good education. Something the United States public education system seems uniquely and increasingly unable to provide for the vast majority of its students.
Would taxpayer-funded school vouchers for a privatized school system solve that problem? Would it create students who could think for themselves? Students who can think?
Depends on whom you ask.
If you ask anyone currently sucking on the local, federal and state taxpayer tit — teachers, administrators, lunch ladies, bus drivers, school supplies providers, etc — obviously not.
If you ask anyone who understands the free market system, sure, why not?
The National School Walkout and the forthcoming national pro-gun control (anti-civil rights) rally in Washington highlight the failure of our public education system to create . . . wait for it . . . great Americans.
It’s creating socialists for socialists. Like Bernie Sanders, who spoke to thunderous applause at a student pro-gun control rally, surrounded by armed bodyguards.
I’m done. I’ve pulled my daughter from public school and put her into an expensive private school. So much for buying a sports car.
Oh and after walking through LA, she turned to me and said, “When I get older and live in a city I want to carry a gun.” A+ baby. A+.
