Political Matrix

You already have the corruption in the market. The problem is that with government regulation, you’re giving teeth to the corrupt marketers. They wouldn’t have it otherwise; there would be too much freedom for competition to tell them to go bark at the moon.

As to getting rid of public education, theoretically, you wouldn’t have to do so in a fell swoop. You could phase it out. It would still be painful, but I think it could be done. Although I feel that public education (and public a lot of other things) is more of a symptom than just a problem in and of itself; the problem of people wanting to pass the buck of responsibility to someone else, and someone else being all too eager to take advantage of it.

I mean, I’d promote Private schools and Charter schools, as I’m not fond of Public Schools right now. But, not everyone can afford Private schools. And those Inner city kids, would do 1000% more damage, without school, then with it.

Major cities like NYC, and Philly need Public Schools. Unless, we rid of suburban Public schools, and Rich area public schools, and keep the inner city schools.

That could work, but It’d still be hard to accomplish.

I think even with there were literally no regulations, then problems would still occur. But, the things I’m pointing out are rare scenarios, so It wouldn’t really affect the overall landscape.

No they wouldn’t, the majority of inner city school kids have had whatever prospect of a future taken away by the socialists.

They require the kids in the inner city to be poor, stupid and violent so that they can create poverty and receive their votes. The teacher unions that run education in this country KNOW THIS and will continue to protect their festering hell holes to promote life long democrat vote slaves.

Schools need to be 100% privatized, whatever money currently being used to fund public schools should be returned to families who can’t afford the schools and taxes should be drastically cut so that middle class families can use that money for schooling their children.

This is a perfectly reasonable system and would still allow everyone to go to school.

Just look at what the liberals are doing to education: They are busing white people from into schools on the bad side of town just to force diversity and vice versa. They are failing to educate any students at a reasonable level. They are failing to educate in math and science.

All of this is intentional, they want poverty stricken vote slaves.

At the bare minimum, you should be able to request whatever money would be spent educating your child in a public school returned to you so that it can be spent on private school.

You are so radical it makes my mind hurt. How the hell would the Government know how much a family spent on their child going to public school?

My curiosity finally won out:

Economic score: +6.58
Social score: +3.13

Your score pegs you as economically capitalist and socially moderately authoritarian.

Capitalists generally support an open free market and lower taxes, but also support government restrictions on blatantly abusive industry. Capitalists also often differ from their more extreme peers in that, while they may support significantly lower taxes, they are less apt to support complete elimination of taxation or near-complete elimination of government.

Moderate social authoritarians typically support social controls meant to encourage moral behavior and an organized society, although they may have some moderate or libertarian positions.

My score may have been skewed to some degree (not sure in what directions) by being less attentive to the “Critical Issue” button on most Qs. I suspect the matrix grading is rather subjective in some areas. E.G., being strongly Pro-Life is probably viewed as Social Authoritarian; being Pro-Life, to me it’s no more “Authoritarian” than laws regarding murder and lesser grades of homicide. E.G. again, the underlying assumptions in the grading might misconstrue my position on faith-based charities receiving government $$. My opposition is not in regard to the propriety of government giving the $$, but because I think it endangers the faith-based charities. What government funds it will try to control: taking government $$ tends to become a poison pill.

My guess is that the matrix grading assumes a pretty much libertarian perspective, and from that POV my ratings are pretty much correct.

Well, for a starting point, the local school district knows what it spends per student. That amount could be put into an escrow account from which parents could draw based on receipts - from private schools, from curriculum publishers/distributors, from tutors. As homeschoolers, I don’t think we ever spent on all three of our munchkins in one year what the local school district spent per pupil in a year! At the end of the school year, the unused $$ could revert to the school district … or be split between the school district and the parents (a modest % to reward the parents for being careful with taxpayer $$).

Being able to demand back taxes you paid for a service that is not being provided is not even remotely radical.

It’d be EASY to determine how much it costs to educate your child and we already compile the statistics yearly.

You just divide the school system budget by the number of students and that is the cost per student. Send it back to those who are not satisfied with the poor service of their government run indoctrination vote slave camps and be done with it.

Not even remotely radical - more like fair to the people who have to pay for this garbage.
