This is more than just "40 or 50".
But as someone has already stated, Davey boy is a dyed in the wool liberal. Their main goal is control as has been seen in the health care debate.
Anything that takes control away from the libs is bad.
They need to be defeated or America will be defeated.
Why don't you open your own school? I'm sure you can find an agenda to Eff up our youth. How about tasing for a wrong answer? That'll snap those little idiot into reality. How about an A on a test gets a pat on the head? A 90 on a teest only gets your rear end a hard swat. A 80 get you a lite tase. A 70 get to strapped to the waterboard table for 15 minutes. Nobody has survived an 'F'. Nice school. American Taliban..

Thank God for Cyber Schools. My child has a medical condition which cause him to be bullied. I complaint to his school on this issue but nothing was done about the problem. The school eventually called CYS on me several times for his medical condition. I finally started to research home schooling but found out that PA makes it almost impossible to do this. Then I came across Agora Cyber School and quickly enrolled both of my kids there. My kids seems to be happier and their performance in school has improved greatly. I think cyber is a good option because it gives the local school system competition. It keeps the local school system in check. I predicted that if school systems doesn't change its way then they will go extinct like the Dodo. That is if the powers to be don't pass some law to protect the local monopoly (local school system)

And for anyone that says that they shouldn't be force to pay for me children education, I agree with you. Let me keep my property taxes that I pay and have a choice of where I send my kids besides forcing me to attend a crappy overpay local public school that is not accountable to anyone.

The school that my children went to was Ingram Elementary just in case anyone cares. I would strongly encourage not send your kids to this school unless you want CYS called on you

In Obama's Germany it's illegal to home school your children.

And we want to emulate Europe?
Why?

Right. Because nobody's smart enough to borrow what works and reject what doesn't. Accepting European ideas about ANYTHING necessarily means we must accept European ways of doing EVERYTHING.

More strawmen from the king of distortions and lies.

Yes, parents who choose to send their kids to the better schools have to pay twice: taxes and tuition.

Fair? No!
But momma said something about life not always being fair.

And I suggest that those parents who make that choice like the private schools and find the money well spent.

Local school: K student brings knife to school and threatens to stab other student. Children throwing the F-bomb around all the time. No control of the classroom and a dangerous environment. Bring on the Charter Schools!!
