You do understand that public schools are funded by taxpayers right?


Absolutely!



So, if a citizen has already paid for a service, how does fining them for not utilizing it completely make any sense at all?


You pay taxes.

You are not in charge of what or how those taxes are used.

It's called enrollment but it's actually just turning the kids over. Try NOT enrolling. It's not optional.

Comparing Govt. run schools with a private job doesn't even make sense.

Now, if I worked for the Govt. and someone didn't show up so that I couldn't do my job that day what happens?



It was hypothetical - - - don't try to twist it.

In America - - - children in most areas (some are questionable) are required to go to school. Doesn't have to be government, can be private, or home schooled. Exceptions are made for religious beliefs.

But, if your child is enrolled in public school - - - taking them out is stealing from the government.

You can claim whatever you want.

I'm talking about America's school system - - - which sounds exactly the same.

You keep your child out of school - - - you are stealing from the government.


I live in the U.S.

I am not stealing from the government. This is the same government that has created a standardized system of "education" that is incentivized so much that I cannot even find a private school or a home school program that doesn't adhere to these standards. They are all falling in line with it in anticipation of how Common Core will become the carte blanche educational standard. You can send your kids to public school for free, or you can send your kids to a "private school" and pay out the nose where they now receive the exact same idiotic education. Talk about a captive audience.

I have to supplement her education and basically un-brainwash her from the social/political crap they are trying to cram down her throat. They aren't teaching her how to think so much as they are teaching her what to think. The only reason she is even there is for the value of socialization with her peers otherwise I would yank her, it would save me a lot of time and effort.

"Stealing from the government". Good lord. The government is doing its level best to steal my kid.

Well, you seem very loyal and grateful to your Govt. so nothing can be said to change anything here.

Personally, I couldn't give a flying **** about it.

You have every right to give everything you earn to the Govt. and if you deny them their dollars from your nickles you have every right to hand over your waffle iron or go to jail.

Because after all, you're free to live under any thumb you choose. As long as they allow you to do so.


Good luck with all that devotion.

Here we go again.

Schools work on a very tight budget. They are paid only if student is in attendance.

You take your kid out of school - - you are stealing from the government.

You don't want your kid in a government school - - then pay for a private one.



That is truly an unbelievable response.


Socialism is a wonderful thing.


This is where the US is heading.


The Real World is unbelievable?

What? Schools function on a "Promise and a Prayer"?
We have already paid taxes that pay for the schools. Children are not wards of the state. Only a socialist/Communist believe that the state knows better than the parent, or actually better than anyone individual.

I can only hope that you have never been in the business of educating children. "A marker". Good grief. That is sick.

No. I've just raised 3 generations of kids/grandkids.

That usually involves being involved with schools.

No. You're correct on that. It is unfortunately factual. What's troubling is your blithe attitude toward those facts. Actually what's even more troubling is your support of the system regarding those facts.

How come a scene from Metropolis just went flashing thru my head?

It is your interpretation that my attitude is blithe.

I never said one way or the other how I felt about it.

Public school in PA during the 1980s was out of control. Now I can only imagine. Educators, above the run-of-the-mill school teacher are some of the most demented people you will observe.

Annee is correct. You pay federal and state taxes. The federal and state government takes that money and appropriates it to fund schools. They make the decision on who gets the funding. Part of the schools' funding is based on how many students are attending - doesn't that make some sort of sense? More students = more funding to take care of their education. Less students = less funding is needed. When students don't show up to school - it means they aren't getting educated for those days they are out - thus the school doesn't get the funding for those kids.

That IS simply the way it works. Don't like it? Talk to your congressmen/women about having school funding not being based on attendance. Good luck with that. Your other option is private school or home school.

"Your other option is private school or home school. "

It's been brought up that this is an Academy.

Now what?

Public school is a privilege. It guarantees a minimal education for every child. Not all countries have this privilege.

Yes, all citizens pay for it with taxes, but if everyone had to pay out of pocket - - many children would not be able to go.

Education is the first key to being a productive citizen. Citizens make up a society. I favor an educated one.

The system to pay for Public school requires a financial plan of what each school costs. Determining cost depends on the number of students. Payment is made only if child is in attendance.

Like I said - - it is what it is.

You got a better plan?
