the school system and the prison system are the same thing:
- school system is a day care system keeps smart people tied up and out of the real world
- prison system is a system that keeps reactive individuals off the streets

so what you're left with is the middle of the bell curve, when everyone's the same, everyone's happy, right?

aren't you happy? (if not we can throw you in school or prison. :) )

have a nice day.

this country is ghey now.

iheartscotch: If you don't want your children to be subject to a higher standard; don't send them to a chartered/private school.

If you don't want to be subject to fines; don't sign the form that says you understand the school's rules and agree to abide by them.

/ you, 100%, have a choice as to where your child goes to school


"higher standard"? where I live the public schools outperform the charter/private schools in everything from education to athletics......so what higher standard are you referring to? uniforms?

iheartscotch: Sometimes, I wonder if the solution is to allow students who do not want to be educated to drop out at an earlier age; thus relieving the education system of the burden of educating them.


They could even be promised a decent wage paying job as a cosmetics of pharmaceuticals lab animal...

Sounds like a win/win to me

Explain how this works for me, the childless taxpayer, who has 100% no choice in funding this shiat.

Runs_With_Scissors_: tricycleracer: Fuk yea privatization.

I'm sure there are people out there who would actually cheer this 'privatization' that's funded through public tax dollars.


Somehow they actually believe Reagan's quip that the worst words in the english language are "I'm from the Government and am here to help." All while drinking their clean water, driving on their level roads, sleeping in their inspected homes, eating their inspected foods, feeling safe because of the police and military.

The parents of one teenager, writes Traci Lee, had to pay close to $2,000 in fines for infractions including "an unkempt appearance and not making eye contact."

The fark?!


 Noble raked in approximately $200,000 in disciplinary fees in 2011 and almost $400,000 since the 2008-09 school year.

Ahhh.... Follow the money.


Such rules preserve order by targeting potential troublemakers and punishing them into submission before they have the chance to do anything which would actually harm the community.

Oh, I see. There's a heaping helping of good old authoritarian abuse of power thrown in, just for fun.

Bastards.
