Huffington Post Comments, 9/11/2012, Part IV

Previous installments, here, here, and here.


Pay property taxes?  Poor people (the one's who can't afford private school) don't own homes, so they aren't paying property taxes anyway.  Gutting our public education system leaves these individuals uneducated, right?  This is effectively controlling who is allowed to be educated. 


Now I can see where you get the (incorrect) idea that I want to control who get educated.

If we want to decide the best way to educate the poor (If its only the poor that you are worried about, then why do we need to pay for public school for almost everyone?), then we must decide on the best way to do it.

My suggestion for educating the children who cannot afford public school (and who don't want to be home schooled) would be to allow the parents of these children to have vouchers, or similar, and allow them to have a choice on which schools they go to.  These could be private schools, which we seem to agree are better than public schools.
