They are not the parents
It’s as simple as that. They are not the parents. I know they like to think they are, but, as in a lot of things, they’re wrong. In a country that boasts about freedom as much as we do here in the U.S., you would think that someone would notice that it really isn’t the government’s business where, when, or how our children are educated.
The government’s not really interested in educating your child
What they call education would be more aptly named training and social engineering. They don’t want to educate everyone’s children. They want to make sure there are enough children trained in the art of being obedient workers to those lucky few who are in the upper echelon of society. (Source: buzzfeed.com).
They’ve had their chance at education, and they are failing miserably
It’s frightening how efficiently our bureaucrats have taken what could have been a potentially beneficial thing and seized control of it, mandated it, and destroyed it. Don’t let them fool you with all their talk of education reform and Common Core and other nonsense.
In order for our education system to change for the better, every single schooling method presently used would have to be either completely wiped out or rewritten until it was unrecognizable, but the government will never think outside the box with education.
They can’t even do their own job (aka- governing) right. Why should we trust them with our kids, too?
I think most of us are well aware that the performance of our elected officials leaves a lot to be desired. Somehow along the way, they’ve forgotten that they are public servants, and instead treat themselves as nobility who can do whatever they choose.
They can’t guarantee your child’s safety
I find it a bit ironic that school districts and judges can send parents to jail and/or impose fines if their children miss too much school, yet the government can’t guarantee that the children will be safe in the school’s custody. I’m not even referring to school shootings here, but everything from bullying to sexual assaults that take place right under the noses of those who are supposed to be in charge of their care.
