Easy to do when you have the sheckels. Now imagine if we defunded the public schools and gave all that wasted money back to the people. It wouldn't be hard for us to replicate similar.Redbeard wrote:
"Fantastic point. I know a handful of parents who are pulling their kids from public school for the same reason. This might've been an issue 50-60 years ago, but there's no way it was as bad as it is now. I went to a very multi-cultural high school and it was a nightmare. So many different groups of people, forced into the same building everyday. Combine that with teenage angst and it's no wonder suicides are on the rise."
Years ago, I had a part time job I would do in the evening for a little extra coin, helping a buddy repair huge wide screen televisions. He sometimes needed an extra set of hands, and I discovered that the job was never the same, depending on where we went. The two of us repaired televisions in prisons, strip joints, multi-million dollar mansions, you name it! But the call we went on, that I recall the best, was to a local Jewish private elementary school. I could not get over how nice the facility was, the quality of the teachers and the sense of family/community. The place was not cheap, but they had a big poster about raising more funds, so a couple dozen poor Jewish kids could attend the school, despite their lack of parental funds. I looked over the bulletin board, which showed the many class trips taken, school parties enjoyed, and how active the parents were with their children's educations. The kids just seemed gentler and more civilized than what I am used to seeing at the public elementary school level. It was definitely stepping into another world.
