So, you expect me to believe that a basic education costs more than college? Really?!<quoted text>As to education, yes, the GOP is against teacher's unions. They are also against schools, children and education. They attack them all. The reason they go after teachers is because teachers teach, an activity they do not approve of. Vouchers?? LOL, yea, let's give a kid a coupon to go to some school somewhere. I bet it's 10 percent off the first months tuition. Tuition is over $3000 per month, so for that family it only cost $2700. Why that is only a mere pittance to someone rich like you.
Come on, you guys and your spin.
Schools around the DC area report a cost per student to be ~$12,000. That equates to a class of 30 students:$360,000 per classroom per year!!
Yet, the teacher is underpaid?
So for a class size of 450 students =$162 million/year.
So a high school could be getting ~$648 million/year.
For this kind of money you could easily pay for private education and get an education to boot with vouchers. Not coupons as you like to assert. Give me the $12K and let me put my kid in a good school so he can earn a competative salary.
Fire the tenured idiot teachers. Let them see if they will get hired by a real institution of learning.
Private schools would pay better and have ample funds for sports and the arts unlike the bad school administrators we have now.
Hell, head start doesn't work. Take those funds as well!
There are plenty of private schools that are secular now that actually teach rather than coach for state competancy exams and they cost less than $12k/year per student.
You're just mad because the liberal indoctrination would disappear and kids would finally become free thinkers---something liberals hate with a passion.
