the government drives out competition by funding all these state schools and doesn't hold teachers to the high standards they should be held to. voucher systems and charter schools don't seem to be making our educational system any better. we're like 17th or so (not number 1) in the world in education.
are teachers' unions to blame?
should the k-12 education system be treated like a business that runs for profit? some think so.
others think this will only cause private funders to go to privileged and rich white neighborhoods leaving out the poor and minorities.
if we're all being taught to learn the same things and do well on the same tests, how the hell can we differentiate between our students?
competition brings about innovation and diversity in our workforce.
should we end the government controlled monopoly on public education in the United States?
