Your unintelligent and ignorant comments are further proof you haven't the capacity to think outside your small minded box. Most people can afford to kick in more money to their children's education except they don't want to. They've had that hand out for so long, it's expected. That money that should go towards their children's education has been earmarked for Disneyland, a bigger house, a newer car, designer clothes and gold caps. These are the same moochers who complain because they can't 'afford' a two dollar increase in books....kind of like the stupid slats who complain they can't afford birth control pills even though they attend a costly private college. The majority of moochers send their kids to public education because they don't want to spend their money on their kids education when they could buy a big plasma tv instead.

I can understand why my comments upset you. They reveal the lazy moocher and good for nothing parent that you must be. And 'hon', that's NOT cute.

<quoted text>Taxpayers are paying for these schools which do not have conducive learning environments. If there are constantly sh/t ests going on over clothing, jewelry, signage,makeup etc.-then something has to change. Taxpayers should not have to bear the brunt of all this wasteful litigation. In order to eliminate this needless expense-you go to school in a uniform and end this nonsense once and for all. Make the parasitic parents contribute more towards this taxpayer funded education AND make parents pay for the transportation.
Guess what? Uniforms cost money too. Guess who pays for that? Taxpayers.

Public school exists because people can't afford private education. Wake up honey.

I happen to agree with him. I attended a school that used uniforms for precisely those reasons. You want status? Earn it, not buy it.

If we cut property taxes, the flood gates would be open and many people would be able to afford to send their kids to private schools.

The majority of people who send their kids to public schools could definitely afford to send their kids to private schools except they don't want to. It's more important for them to enjoy materialism. If we taxed each family $3500 per child for selecting a public education with a $5,000 cap per family, you would see much more parental involvement. These parents should also be responsible for the transportation as well. Eliminate the money taken in property taxes and that frees some some serious cash.

Why should taxpayers have to pay for your kid's clothing? Uniforms are much less costly and less distracting. It puts an end to wasting time on whether someone should be able to wear rainbows.

Uniforms make it so much easier on the kids too. Can't tell you how many times kids preferred wearing their uniforms even on those free dress days. I know kids who had three pairs of pants and three shirts and managed all year this way. Some got used uniforms donated or for a nominal price. You can save thousands if your school uses uniforms-especially for the girls. It puts an end to that clothing competion.

My complaint is you can deduct a bottle wine as a business expense but education for your kids is not tax deductible

It's stupid if you are a moocher. Most moochers don't want to give up a the free ride. If you cut out the school tax which is usually around 70% and then some, you would put money back in everyone's pockets to spend the way they wished. There are people who have to hand over $25,000 each year just for property taxes. Businesses even more. If parents provided their own transportation that would save millions. What's wrong with that? Who gave govt. the responsibility to be everyone's parent?

Schools waste so much money on junk and then they turn around and pretend they don't have enough money...it's such a lie.

Litigation costs alone in districts is one of their best guarded secrets.

Why can't parents pay a user tax and relieve the burden on others?

If it's not your money, how careful do you think anyone is really going to be?

If we want to reduce the debt, we need to think outside the box and be willing to come to the table. EVERYONE should come to the table.

Govt. schools have been problematic because of the fact citizens are forced to pay into a system that fails more than it succeeds. There is little competition, little that can be done about lazy and unqualified teachers, dismal results, distruptive classrooms, boring and unchallenging classes, and so on.

One way to change this is to let the market drive education through competition and demand. Schools can survive on far less money than what they claim. I've seen how their political wheels move and it's revolting. They work very much like a typical politician...tell you what you want to hear with a bunch of smoke and mirror 'reports'. If you're gullible you'll believe and be happy.

Most parents think their kids are getting a great education and in reality they are not.

Truth is, there is far less learning going on than you think. Kids are trapped because their parents are either stupid, lazy or selfish.

Most people can't think outside the box long enough to consider the possiblities and they are endless.

If it were possible to purchase a home or locate a business in a town that did not subsidize schools, they wouldn't be able to meet the demand. Too bad it isn't legal.....yet.

Govt. education is a huge trap and taxpayers are discouraged from seeking a private education. The more uninformed you are, the more likely you will continue to back their requests for more money.

Those who send their kids to private education not only have to pay to educate someone else's brat, they pay for their own way without getting a tax break. We have been living under socialistic rule for some time now and obama is hoping to contain us completely by getting govt. entangled in our health care too.

We deserve options and the right to prosper without handing over the fruits of our labors to our slavemasters, the govt. Why should we continuing builing pyramids for the lib elites who think they know what we need and want better than we do?

Michael Moore is a member of the liberal elite party of slavemasters who are rich at the expense of the idiots who worship and glorify them. Anyone who would trust Michael Moore would be silly enough to trust any fool with a sword.

Canadian elites come to this country for medical procedures. Doctors come to this country to learn procedures like third world countries come here to learn sewage processing systems.

The insurance industry is quite powerful and owns both democrat and republican parties. Attorneys own the right to sue and litigate medical costs to the sky. Govt regulates manufacturers, hospitals, doctors to extremes which contribute to skyrocketing costs.
