Grandiloquent Grapefruit: If things continue down the path of pandering to the private sector the eventual outcome will be corporations holding long-term focus groups, calling it school and charging the kids parents for it.


"Okay class, here we have an artist's depiction of what Thomas Jefferson would have looked like drinking a delicious Coke. And here he is enjoying refreshing Pepsi. Now children, you will each write a short 500 word essay on which feels more 'historical' and why."

coeyagi: My PA friends laughed at me when I moved to DE.  Who's laughing now, asshats?  I can go to Philly, Baltimore or DC in less than 2 hours for any of them; I don't have Corbett systematically turning my state into a Mad Max hellscape to deal with.

Defunding them to the tune of $14,000 per pupil.  How anyone expects to educate children on such a pittance is beyond me.

While your PA friends might not have a leg to stand on, I strongly disagree with your implication that Delaware is not a "Mad Max hellscape".

thenewmissus: If conservatives had their way, education would be a privilege.  Just scary.


Actually, it education would still be *compulsory*, but the kids would have have to enter into an indentured servitude agreement with a corporation that took effect when they graduated. Oh, and they'd have arranged marriages, too.

It's not about having stupid people, it's about having slaves. Conservatives really REALLY want feudalism to make a comeback.
