money doesnt make a person smart, hard work and a want for learning makes a person smart.

Being born smart makes a person smart. Money pays for better schools which improves the average. You can't make a person smart, but you can at least introduce them to a book or two, and they're better of for it.

>implying education proves that someone is smart.

Well, it sure as hell doesn't make you dumber.
User avatar #213 to #212 - nephritho (05/09/2013) [-]
Unless they give you the wrong material.
Like making you learn that the world is 6000 years old or that dinosaurs and humans lived next each other.

Logic fail. The US education system has been intentionally dumbing people down for decades.

Because literacy is a serious problem isn't it?
You are forgetting decades ago people only did a few years of school to learn how to read and write, now many more people go to highschool and even university. Maybe you should learn more, but others don't.

My Senior friend voted no on our School levy. I'm a junior so I actually cared, even after I'm I of school and am old enough to vote, I plan on voting yes. I got him back though. Him: "Like I give a **** , I'm not going here anymore after this year so why should I spend my money on it?"
Me: "Alright, how would you like to be able to collect taxes from others?"
Him: "That would be awesome."
So I punched him saying that his Jewishness has earned him a tax of receiving wholesum, filling, nutritious knuckle sandwiches.

Implying that someone who wants to learn won't find a way to learn anyway.
Implying people who don't want to learn will actually learn from a school they're forced to got to.
User avatar #19 to #15 - sketchE (05/08/2013) [-]
but why is no one motivating them to learn. a good teacher can make even the biggest **** want to learn.
User avatar #26 to #19 - smittywrbmnjnsn (05/09/2013) [-]
But schools that you pay for in taxes...do not supply those teachers.
User avatar #27 to #26 - sketchE (05/09/2013) [-]
they do from time to time. sadly they cant fire ****** teachers either
User avatar #28 to #27 - smittywrbmnjnsn (05/09/2013) [-]
Time to time is not enough to prove the worth of the tax.
User avatar #29 to #28 - sketchE (05/09/2013) [-]
i understand that the main point was that they cant fire bad teachers
#39 to #19 - anonymous (05/09/2013) [-]
False. Even the best teachers can't get through to little dick whistles that haven't been taught the decency to give a **** by their parents.
User avatar #40 to #39 - sketchE (05/09/2013) [-]
then you have never had a truly great teacher
#45 to #40 - anonymous (05/09/2013) [-]

Yeah but can we spend more of the school money on actually teaching kids instead of the best football field?
#141 - anonymous (05/09/2013) [-]
Yes. Keep throwing money at problems until they are fixed. This pleases Lord Obama.

We're already living in a country full of stupid people

The government operates on a extreme deficit

Money goes to waste constantly in schools

Besides, kids that go to private schools turn out to be assholes who are easily offended.
User avatar #115 to #36 - zorororonoa (05/09/2013) [-]
I went to private school and me and most of my friends who went with me are not like that.
User avatar #129 to #115 - KayRed (05/09/2013) [-]
Ladies and gentleman, may I present to you an asshole who is easily offended.
User avatar #130 to #129 - zorororonoa (05/09/2013) [-]
I wasn't offended though
User avatar #240 to #130 - KayRed (05/09/2013) [-]
Well...Some one went through the trouble of thumbing down all the comments listed on my profile (front page of them at least), and seeing as most of those comments are from a post that is over a day old, I am going to assume it was either you, or one of your private school friends who was offended by my post.
User avatar #241 to #240 - zorororonoa (05/09/2013) [-]
It wasn't me dude, i dunno what to say. Also, I don't know of any of my friends having a FJ account, and if they do, then don't know my username. Sorry man.
User avatar #242 to #241 - KayRed (05/09/2013) [-]
Oh, it was a generalizing term, I didn't mean they were actually your friends.
User avatar #243 to #242 - zorororonoa (05/09/2013) [-]
Oh, well, I'm not offended just so you know.

That is why cheating is nothing to joke about, if a teacher sees a student cheating then he should disqualify that student, not simply ignore it and let the kid do it because that teacher is "cool."

Wishful thinking.

Problem is that a quality education is all about giving students face time with their mentors. if you want your kids to be well educated, they are going to need some one on one tutoring.

Now the problem with public education is that it creates an artificially low limit for the cost of education. Private institutions have to raise their prices because of this. So while public education makes it possible for anyone to get at least a poor education, it also makes it much more expensive to get a quality one.

IMO if we are going to provide a free public education system , we're going to have to completely rethink the way we do things. Instead of spending millions, if not billions to physically house teachers and students, make the education materials open source, hand the responsibility to educate children back over to the parents. Sorry but i dont think i should have to pay for what basically amounts to free day care for irresponsible parents, its stupid
