Reason 342: Because It’s Dimes For Dollars Cheaper

I’ve pointed out many times here that the schoolhouse is a money laundering scheme. The teacher’s  unions fill political campaign coffers and in return, those politicians increase spending on schools, and round and round it goes. The losers? Taxpayers and students.

Here is an article that discusses the cost of educating a child expensively, with poor results:

What did these schools produce while spending more than $18,000 per student? Not well-educated children.

In the Philadelphia public schools in 2015, according to the National Assessment of Educational Progress scores published by the Department of Education, 80 percent of eighth graders were not grade-level proficient in math. Eighty-four percent were not grade-level proficient in reading.

In the Detroit public schools, 96 percent of eighth graders were not grade-level proficient in math. Ninety-three percent were not grade-level proficient in reading.

In the District of Columbia public schools, 83 percent of the eighth graders were not grade-level proficient in math. Eighty-one percent were not grade-level proficient in reading.

I can’t understand anyone who bases their decision to not home educate on fear of failing their children. Two things to understand. The schoolhouse is lost. Children are natural learners.

And there’s one more thing to understand. Ignorant people make great slaves, and they’re easy to enslave.

  1. Yeah, but I do not want a tas rebatr for homeschooling, either. That means I give them decision-making power and control.

    • I call it thug money. It’s like the young couple in Chicago who get married and start their little bakery business on the corner. Everything’s fine for a couple of weeks and then in walks a man in an expensive suit with his hair slicked back. His name is Guido. He informs the newlywed entrepreneurs of the price of his protection. They look at each other puzzled, then back at Guido and ask, “Protection? From what!?”
      His deadpan answer: “From me.”
