This is about the best idea I have EVER read on this comment system. This would also greatly reduce the issue with funding for schools in poorer districts with a low tax base. People MUST recognize that in an ever increasing global economy that our children simply CAN NOT COMPETE with countries like China, India and Japan who have a system that standardizes the educational system on a country level. If anyone needs to ask why our jobs are all going over there its partly the low wages, its also about how these countries prepare their kids for the workplace.
I love when people compair our system of education that is held back by being all inclusive to contries that only educate those deemed smart enough to attend; and try to minimize the negative impact that the minimum wage has had on our manufacturing/blue collar work force.
