We have to start over with public education; period, end of story! First step? Return it to States, who should delegate it to local governments…..Second step?
No fucking unions!

Alas, two different legal situations, The school could not apply, or even allow the kid to apply, suntan lotion for fear of lawsuits in case some allergic kid was exposed to it. The other, it was not school personnel involved – and the law there says anyone can get an abortion at any age without normal (?) age rules.
Evacuate the schools.
Burn them to the ground.
Bulldoze the rubble flat.
Sow the ground with salt.
Place markers in the shape of graves as a warning to future generations.
The department of commerce destroys commerce, the department of agriculture pays people not to grow food, the department of energy makes energy more expensive and harder to get, what did you think the department of education was going to do?
That goes for states as well as federal, it’s not like it’s a different *kind* of bureaucratic busybody, and the taxpayer pays for it and is ignored in either case.
You can’t even send OTC items to school, have to have prescription label.
As for abortions, counselors can and will direct girls without parental knowledge or consent.
Yes, the situation IS as fucked up as portrayed.
Just more proof of the leftist war on freedom of religion and free speech.
Will this country just lay there and take it?

Child endangerment, child abuse, negligence, and practicing medicine without a license — law or no law, consent form or no consent form.
That’s why they don’t let me try cases.

I’m a big fan of public education. As a nation we should make sure that no matter what someone’s income level is, their kids are educated.
I see no reason to conflate “public education” with “publically owned and operated schools”, however. Close the schools. Give the parent(s) of each school-age child a voucher for the amount of money the taxpayers have been spending per-pupil in their school district at the start of each school year. The Federal Dept. of Education closes. The State Depts. of Educations’ job becomes that of accreditation. Accreditation becomes a function of the curriculum you teach and whether you do a minimally acceptable job of it. Religious enhancement of the curriculum is not to be an issue.
You must not read the news much or your news is filtered to block “Indiana.”
From the ACLU and union protests, we’re “taking money away and destroying public education” by ” violating separation of church and state to send rich kids to religious schools.”
Take rate is still low. Vouchers have an income limit. Charter (NON-RELIGIOUS) schools have seen growth. Awesome opportunity for inner city youth, many of whom have jumped at the chance, yet vouchers called discriminatory. (?!)
Cost per student is SIGNIFICANTLY lower in most privates around here, yet graduation rates and SAT/ACT scores are higher than public schools. Yes, parental involvement and participation are factors, but old union hags collecting 60+ grand a year for 9 months of half-assed effort can NOT be dismissed. (my oldest was “lucky enough” to have one of those high-seniority taxsuckers last year)
It’s ALL about union control of the money and leftist control of our children’s minds. They don’t give a rats ass about education.
