You two should get a room. It's absolutely hilarious seeing a far left loon knock public education while supporting a party that is responsible for it and jails our children (in families that cannot afford private school) in the system.
Here is a leftard knocking public education yet the Democrats stop vouchers every time they can. This is the typical conundrum of the left knocking something at the same time forcing it on others.
You far left loons really are too much!

There is nothing wrong with our public school system that a good parent can't solve.
How about a parent who is also a teacher, or a scientist, or an engineer, or a physician?

Many of those who home-school do so because their children are of above-average intelligence and/or achievement and are held back by schools that teach to the lowest common denominator.

If your child can already read and do basic arithmetic, why send him to first grade, wasting his time?

I have come to the conclusion that we should just get out of the way and let the democrat/progressives have their way. Let them own it all. The fastest way to fix this problem is, maybe, to just let the democrats totally crash and burn the system. Then we can pick up the pieces and rebuild the country the way it's suppose to be. Rand Paul is right. Give it to them.

Language skills and math skills are extremely important and should be emphasized. Teaching English to non-English speaking students should be the highest priority.
Trade schools as an alternative to academic high schools are an excellent approach.
I never mentioned math which is pretty much universal__language skills are a huge challenge for Florida's teachers because of an influx of non English speaking residents and the transient nature of how people, both citizens and immigrants, go about migrating.

A few years back the Orlando Sentinel featured a single classroom in in Kissimmee Florida taking a class photo at the beginning of the year, another prior to the Christmas break and one more at the years end. Only a few of the beginning students remained at years end and many came and then left as the year went along. That sort of student movement doesn't occur in other regions of the US, not even in CA or AZ.

As a further complication, Florida's immigrants are from numerous nations on different continents speaking various languages.

How in the fk is a fourth grade teacher supposed to prepare a ten year old Haitian kid, who never saw the inside of a school before this year, for a written essay?

Do you think Al Sharpton appreciates the irony of his being invited to the White House Tuesday to talk taxes with President Obama?
That is, to talk about Obama’s plan to ram through steep tax hikes on the “rich” to resolve the fiscal-cliff crisis?
Sharpton’s all about taxes — for others.
For himself, well, maybe not so much.
As The Post’s Isabel Vincent and Melissa Klein reported last year, Sharpton “owe[d] the IRS $2.6 million in income tax, and nearly $900,000 in state tax.”
And his personal pride and joy National Action Network owed more than $880,000 in unpaid federal payroll taxes, interest and penalties, Vincent and Klein found.
Which makes Obama’s decision to invite Sharpton (and several other MSNBC hosts) baffling. Why ask a man with a terminal case of tax allergies to make the case for higher rates for everybody else?
The Rev’s issues go back decades: In 1993, for example, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor tax crime to avoid two felony charges.
In the years since, the IRS has issued a dozen liens against Sharpton’s groups, including one against him for $538,652 in 2010.
Asked about all this yesterday — specifically, whether he’s gotten square with the tax man — Sharpton said simply that he has “resolved all matters.”
But his spokeswoman later refused to respond to a simple question: Has Sharpton actually paid his taxes?
Nevertheless, it’s clear that the reverend intends to preach Obama’s tax-hike gospel. After leaving the White House Tuesday, he dedicated a 12-minute segment on his MSNBC show to the need for “a tax increase on the richest in this country.”
Since Obama is targeting those who make more than $200,000 a year, the “richest” set actually includes Sharpton himself — who pulls in $240,000 annually from the National Action Network alone, and never mind his MSNBC gig.
But here’s the bottom line: Sharpton is happy to spread the gospel about “tax fairness,” but if tax law were “fair”— that is, if it were applied to him like everybody else — he’d have been out of the picture a very long time ago. It’s as simple as that.

Can you spot the error?

Meanwhile, don't sugar coat it Homer, tell him how you really feel.

BTW, I was going to comment that Homer knows nobody gives a sh it what Jane Says but I thought I'd be overstepping my bounds so I refrained.
