in thread The most important issue for me in elections is:
Your doing the very same thing that your accusing them of, on average a private education may cost $7000 this means you can get it for less
Money also is not IMHO the problem, I went to public schools last, (Gardner, MA) they had plenty of money, classrooms could easily have held twice as many students
And compition is NEVER a bad thing, nor is choice. freedom==choice.
What does more money actually do? reduce class size? That doesn't do anything, most catholic schools have classes of 60+ students but have better results than the public schools
And it can put computers in the class room, but what exactly are they going to do with these computers? If your students are failing your current classes adding more isn't going to help, and having a couple computers in a classroom isn't going to magically change anything
I very much disagree with the idea that we should just randomly throw money at public schools and hope the problem goes away, it won't
BTW before any federal money gets added to the department of Education they should get their books in order. Congress hired a private company to go through and straighten out the books, that company was unable to do it. Their should be accountability on every level down to the cent.
