Oh, what happens to kids that flunk out of public schools? Do they graduate? Nope.Get real thinks that private schools are better because they have higher rates of graduation and college attendance. Gee, ya think selective admissions have anything to do with that? What do you think happens to kids who flunk out of private school? The ones with behavior issues? Special needs? If I could select who gets into my classroom, and remove those who don't cut it, even I would look like a great teacher.
Your data on the average cost of private education are similarly flawed, as well as being at least a decade old.
Isn't it easy to be right when you cherry pick data and ignore inconvenient facts?
When demographically similar kids take the same test, the public school students outperform the privates.
So the question still is, why would you ask taxpayers to subsidize an education that is no better in quality, and deprives taxpayers of the oversight we deserve? This is the opposite of government transparency.
Do kids flunk out of public schools because of learning disabilities? Yup.
Why should kids that want to work hard be held back by kids that don't want to work hard? When my kids teacher has a child that needs to move a grade ahead she can advance the child without transitioning them to another class. Show me a public school school that can give that type of education for less than $3500 a year.
