Maybe tomorrow. I need to go to the Springs to get my new glasses. TRUST me, you want me to get my new glasses.
So, while I’m gone, someone brush RES and the rest of you put on pants, okay.
Oh, and in answer to some idiot who asked that if I don’t like socialism, am I willing to give up government education?
Government education is NOT a law of nature, and nothing in the constitution really allows it.
My father and his siblings went to various school marms his parents paid for. They knew Latin by 10. I had the benefit of public education. My little Latin and small Greek didn’t come till adulthood. And I’m not nearly as educated as dad.
But won’t you think of inner city kids?
What? with graduation rates in minority-majority (eh) schools of 30% and most of those incapable of reading and even fewer of reading in English? Letting them just roam around might achieve better results.
Also, trust me, most of the kids are not just prevented from reading. Immigrant kids are told they can never assimilate, that they’re oppressed and that this country is the worst in the world. (Trust me. They tried that on my kids, as well as education in Spanish.)
WHY do you hate minority immigrant kids so much you want them to be a permanent uneducated serf class?
The parents who care will arrange for kids to learn. Charities will arrange for the rest. States and cities might make their own arrangements. Some kids will fall through the cracks. As opposed to now?????
Sure, a public education is great for a country of immigrants. It helps foster common culture. Except when the common culture is hating the country you’re in, and a bunch of lies about its history.
Then it becomes an instrument of destruction. And you want to know if I wish it were done away with? Why are you asking? Is this a trick?
Bah. Throw me in the briar patch.
