1) Can someone please explain to me what tptb stands for? I see this posted everywhere here but nowhere else.
2) Sure, private schools are superior now without a shadow of a doubt, even homeschooling is a much better alternative but even though I will put my
eventual kids through one of the two (or homegroup schooling), that doesn't mean that the public education should be ignored. If not for the majority
of the children out there that have no choice but to learn from this horrible mess we call public schools, then at the very least we need to be
concerned about what they are teaching kids at school.
Think about your typical college student. They are liberal and are perfectly okay with being in control because that's what they have been learning.
They believe that a college degree will guarantee them a job and it's their right to have one and if they don't get one, they can get a government
paycheck from the magical money tree. How many college students waste their time on silly nonsense because they believe they are making a difference
in the world? How many of them have you spoken to that think equality for all means stealing from the rich, giving to the poor and everyone lives
equally with equal salary? I wish I could say that I've never had such discussions but I've had many of those in the past 10-years to warrant a
facepalm of picard's degree.
Now what's happening with children in public schools? What are they learning? They are learning a different alteration of the constitution, they are
changing, and showering in the same changeroom because unisex is equality for some reason. What about politics that they teach in school? I remember
my teachers were always pro-union and pro-liberal and tried to indoctrinate students to believe in what they would believe in so that those students
would further vote for their job security. It's complete BS.
Homeschooling is also getting sketchy. In some areas, you're not allowed to home-school unless you have a college degree and are certified to
home-school and you MUST follow a specified curriculum instead of getting a placement test for high-school. This discourages home-schooling because
not everyone has such credentials to home-school. Public schools have to go by what Obama says if they accepted federal aid, which just about every
school did (or is it the state that accepts that?).
Either way, the future is always dependent on the children because they are the next generation of adults that will shape the world. But what happens
when these kids are too stupid, too loyal to government, unable to think for themselves, have passing grades even though they failed, and so on? It's
a grim future for the US and I really hope for the best. I'm probably going to retire out of the country when the time comes because my social
security probably won't ever come, and the cost of living in the US might be too high to even consider retirement. Good luck future kids, you're
raised to be ignorant and very proud of it. Good luck paying for the mess this past decade has caused for you and your great, great grandchildren.
