Education public vs. private


According to AEI, Oct 2013

“Why do public school teachers send their own children to private schools at a rate 2X the national average?”


“Philadelphia Public School Teachers: 44% enroll their own children in private schools, or four times the national average.”

Malthusian social experiments

Some suggest that everyone should have the right to “chase the American dream”. Where will all of those dreamers work and live and go to school while in the hunt? How do they survive? Public assistance? Millions of people and only a relative handful of jobs and living spaces. After all there are only 500 Fortune 500 CEO positions and they don’t turnover that often. What exactly will people do while they wait?

When some organizations claim to be able to turn one US dollar into many meals for people in need in their native countries, why foist a Malthusian social experiment on immigrants and US or European citizens? Does then Open Borders group enjoy real world Hunger Games?

Ruling Class logic

Here they go again …

“Those with the strongest claim to significant tuition assistance are students who have persevered to complete a degree that will pave the way for employment, more advanced training or both. Indifferent students should not be rewarded for filling their classroom seats anymore than children should be encouraged to fill their plates with food they do not care to eat.”

And, as usual, asked but never answered …

“The question is always who pays how much, and what they should reasonably expect for their money.”

School district employs bouncer

Two people lost their tempers and the smaller lost the fight (could have been worse) and the bigger one lost a career. The girl appeared to be ready to throw down with guy.

Nobody knows what the girl might have experienced in her environment earlier that day or earlier that week. Usually these kids are really crying out for help when they are disruptive. The argument that the other kids can’t learn as a result is an end justifies the means issue.

Two loose cannons. Both needed help and counseling long before this incident.

Now it could very well be that the District had this “bouncer” in place and gave him the tacit authority to show who’s boss when he is finally called in.

Guess we will see in court.
