And would private companies provide education free of cost?
"For if you [the rulers] suffer your people to be ill-educated, and their manners to be corrupted from their infancy, and then punish them for those crimes to which their first education disposed them, what else is to be concluded from this, but that you first make thieves [and outlaws] and then punish them."
-Sir Thomas More (1478-1535), Utopia, Book 1
*Admirer, of Philosophy.*
[QUOTE=tttppp;4359607]How are local controls any good? In my town they keep jacking up the property taxes to pay for new schools we don't need. Not only should the federal government be out of education, the local governments should be out of education too.[/QUOTE
Same here, they jack property taxes here for a new multi billion dollar performing arts center while we're going to cut extra curricular activities like 1 year or 2 later what a waste along with the fact that we have 3 empty useless schools that we cannot sell for money. It's the government int he city to provincial to fed level that continues to fuck this up.
Hey TTTPPP you seem like you live in our city
But you could make companies tax rates based on how well they treat their community, and make giving affordable education to poor people one of those things. That would motivate the private sector to educate the poor people.
Union City, California you too>?
And now I hear they are building a new high school, about 13 years after they just got a brand new addition, and just a few years after they built a brand new middle school.
Point is, local governments are just as bad as the federal government. I heard there are plenty of conspiracy theories regarding the people running this town, just like the federal government.
Oh that's not bad as our superintendent spending our taxes on her car, she got fired though
