The United States public education system is an absolute joke. I've literally missed 200 DAYS of my first 3 years of high school and I'm in the top 5% of class. Am I somewhat smart, yes. Should I be top 5% of my class after missing that many days, hell no. They need to start teaching people through better means and actually motivate people to want to learn by not having people be graded through standardized testing and redundant packets.

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

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."

You can toss all the money you have into edumacashion but when your students follow this culture there is not point.

Yes. Keep throwing money at problems until they are fixed. This pleases Lord Obama.

The worst kinds of people are the ones who don't recognize that the vast majority of people genuinely are trying to do what's right, it's just that everybody has a different interpretation of that. A lot more problems would be solved if people didn't think as is if the other side is intentionally wrong or something. I know this sounds hypocritical, but I do believe most people who do that also don't realize it and are indeed just doing what they believe is right.

Besides, kids that go to private schools turn out to be assholes who are easily offended.

The Federal Reserve is a privately owned bank.
The IRS collects money from the people in the form of tax. This tax money has to be then given straight to the Federal Reserve, because the government had to buy the printed notes from them.
American tax goes straight to 4/5 families who own the Federal Reserve.
I couldn't believe it when I was first told, but look into it, it's the most disgusting thing going on in America.

Yeah but can we spend more of the school money on actually teaching kids instead of the best football field?

Ah, John Green. Taking the easiest opinion to defend at every turn to make himself look like a smart, open-minded, well-adjusted individual.
