For far too long we have lived with a socialistic mentality when it comes to public education. Now that my state government is trying to make budget cuts in education, many people are outraged and stormed the capitol tonight. Among them were occupiers, teachers and other anarchists who want to bully their way into getting a free ride. Since when is it the government's job to educate your child? It isn't their job to do that and I think every American should pay for their own child's education instead of taking the taxpayers money.
It's not like the public educational system is any good, we have high schoolers who can't even read! Teachers, especially those in unions, are bullying their way to get what they want - money. Can you remember the good 'ole days when teachers had a love for the children? Now, its for the green. Whether you like it or not, they are taking taxes out of your paycheck and/or your families' paycheck to fund sub-par education. Since we are forced to pay taxes for public education, then why not allow a voucher that follows the child? The child/parent chooses the school. THEN you will see an improvement in schools and quality education! Capitalism gives room for excellence, and that is applicable in education.
Imagine if every American started paying for their own - food, housing, medical and education! Taxes could be used for roads, transportation, a strong military and to help those who really need it like the elderly and disabled! It's time we stop this entitlement mentality and realize that the government doesn't owe us anything, including public education!
