Taxes and education were mentioned and not a single major ********* was had. Funnyjunk, I'm proud of you. Especially considering how any sentence starting with "As a taxpayer" guarantees butthurt.

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.

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.

But... He already lives in America?

America spends more on it's education system than it does on its military which is a good thing.
Because I am pretty sure that you have more benefit from schools than you do bombing a backwards country thousands of miles away

The local pubic school will pass anyone, even if they need a year or 2 of being held back.

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.

But schools that you pay for in taxes...do not supply those teachers.

For most people it's so they don't get their home broken into, their car stolen, get kidnapped, and thrown in a cage. Taxation is simply legalized theft.

Well in conclusion: Have a good night, sir. It's been a fun debate.

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
