  • A monopoly on education is the worst kind

    Governments should not have monopoly control of Education. When a company has a monopoly on a particular service, the motivation to provide a stellar service is not present. There is also little to no motivation to provide competent costumer service. Also, when governments control the educational system, they also control the curriculum. When a federal government controls curriculum, it becomes watered down and is not able to adopt to the individual needs of the students.

  • Technology will prevail

    In 20 or 30 years, (maybe less) this will be a moot point. Brick and mortar schools above elementary grades are already obsolete, they just don't realize it yet. Technology will soon make traditional schools outdated and unnecessary. Computers, AI robots, and other advances will replace traditional schools gradually over the next few decades. The replacement of factory style education, unnatural peer pressure, and government indoctrination in their version of knowledge will be a boon to mankind in the long run.

  • Teachers brainwashing children.

    Teachers in public schools try to teach children their own opinions and try to force children to believe their textbooks version of things and question none of it. I have nothing against evolutionist but they are just forcing evolution down children throats. I used to have a teacher who "subtlety" told us to convince our parents to vote for Barack Obama. BRAINWASHING.Also there is sex-ed. The fact that the government schools are trying to take away the parents right to give children personal info is absurd. The only comfort is the fact that the schools give parents the choice to not let the children watch that crap.

  • So terrible they need to be closed.

    Public education is currently terrible and needs to be overhauled. There are so many funds spent that could be better spent (about $10,000 per student in Maryland). Imagine that we provided even half that amount to families for education purposes as they see fit. So many more families could home school or send their children to private schools as they saw fit. We would also get our well behaved and motivated children away from disruptive or unmotivated children. Children are primarily the responsibility of their parents, and currently many students are not equipped for a traditional school setting. Private schools have the ability to expel disruptive students, which makes a huge difference in the quality of the community.

  • I think schools are like a video game

    From my experience, school does not prepare you for the real world. We sat down, listened to an authority figure and pass abstract tests. I don't see how this is any different than the games I am so addicted to. Here are some similarities:
    1. You are given the rules of the game
    2. You are to achieve goals that have no direct bearing on reality. In video games, it might be capture a flag; in school it might be memorize facts to pass a test.
    3. There is a fixed endpoint. In games, it is when you get to the ending; in school, it is when you graduate.

    How I think this differs from real life
    1. There are no rules inreal life
    2. Memorizing is far less importance than skill; goals are far less important than enduring the grind
    3. There is no end point. You just keep on going

    I think schools should be replaced with job training (I heard this idea from a friend of a friend)

  • End these prisons!

    The only remaining purpose of government schools is to indoctrinate and prepare the sheeple for Brave New World and 1984. Stronger than even the instinct for procreation and for food and water is the human desire to tell someone else what to do. Moreover, busing millions of children is economically wasteful and environmental destructive.

  • Changed my mind to yes

    I used to think they were vital. I think the government should stay out of it and privatize it. It will encourage small businesses. Parents can choose the path they want their children to follow. Parents will be responsible for ensuring their child's education (where the responsibility actually belongs). Children will not be indoctrinated by issues parents don't agree with. Choice is a good thing. It will get the bloated school districts off the property taxes. Teachers can choose where they wish to work and start funding their own retirement plans instead of the citizens subsidizing it. People will then have more expendable income to fund their own retirements and spend their dollars elsewhere. If you choose to have kids, then you pay for them and educate them the way you see fit. Elderly homeowners and people of lower income cannot afford the property taxes any more either.

  • Right around the time hell freezes over

    Public schools are incredibly important. If you dont want your kid going there and you are wealthy and privileged enough to send them to private school or homeschool them than by all means go ahead i fully supoort you and no hard feelinga. But do not take the option from people who need it. Well funded public achools provide educational opportunity to most of the country and more importantly for people who couldnt have an education otherwise. The quality of your education should not be determind by how much money you have, where you live, your race, religion, or how much time you can take off work to homeschool your kid.Do you know what the country was like before public school? Education was reserved for rich WASPs. No immigrants, no poor people. And then thise people couldnt pull themselves from poverty because they had no access to education.

  • We need public schools!

    I'm from Northern Ireland, and we have hardly any private schools here. They're almost all public, and when we got rid of the 11+, we brought it back in pretty much the same form. Some schools are comprehensive, some are grammar and some are a mix of both, but it's hard to find a private school here. Anyway, public schools usually get the best results out of all the schools in GCSEs and A Levels, and private schools tend to be quite elitist - which goes without saying when you have to pay for them, but they tend to favour the richest pupils. Do you think everybody can afford to go to a private school? There are only a limited amount of scholarships. Poor people would not be able to afford education.

  • That would be a bad idea.

    Abolishing public schools would essentially limit ones education to how much money they have. In fact this would intesify the cycle of poverty to a degree which has not been witnessed in decades. Poor families would not be able to afford a good education while rich families would have a huge advantage. Education is a right, not a privilege.

  • Schools is not a prison but a fun place that benefits all. It plays a crucial role in education.

    Schools never forced children to come if the children are unwilling. The one that forced children to come is the parents. Schools is a fun place were students play together and have fun together. It was never a prison to start with. Therefore, schools should NOT be abolished! It should stay forever!
