Public Schools. Should they stay or should they goSubmitted by FreedomFighter204 on Thu, 12/13/2012 - 15:57
Hello my fellow DP'ers, ever since visiting this website and reading the forums and all that jazz I come to the conclusion that a lot of you are against public schools. I myself could see the negatives of public schools while attending them; the underfunded material, overcrowded classes and questionable curriculum's being taught in class. I also saw the positives of giving people basic educations, allowing people rich or poor to get an education and allowing people to be social with one and another.
I would like to hear peoples arguments against public schools as well as an alternative besides home schooling; not everyone can give up their time to home-school their children. Would maybe allowing government funding to run the schools while they kept out of the studies? Allow private teachers for hire and they're own curriculum based on the subject they teach? Or just turn them all into private schools?
Whatever your solution might be I'd like to hear it, as well as maybe what Dr. Paul thinks about it. Also are they're any good books that provide some clarity to other alternatives that could work besides the current public school systems both in United States and Canada.
