You have to wonder if there will be a point where universities will start saying they'll no longer admit any student from states like South Carolina as they haven't received educations that meet their standards

Nikki Haley's Educational Platform Standardized Test:

1. Who is your Lord and Savior?

2. When did you first form a personal relationship with the person named in 1?

*Note: the inability to answer Question 2 requires reporting for immediate reeducation to the L. Bob Rife Church o' Hollerin' Down Satan.

From what I've seen of public school performance in this country, you've got to ask, "what do they think they were doing before?"

The full quote isn't bad. It seems more or less meaningless, but it's not bad.

South Carolina made history this year by passing education reform. We will no longer educate children based on where they are born. Through reading coaches, technology investments, and expanding charter schools we just confirmed that we want our children to be the future workforce for our growing high tech jobs!

How many public sector schools fail each year? Oh, right, you don't know, because the public sector (for some reason) isn't as transparent and accountable as private industry. And Union Teachers are the worst. I know. I was one. I left because I got tired of the b.s., lazy teachers (and students), with no way of solving the problem.

Don't you think it's a little easier to "succeed" if you're allowed not to take any students you want?

If private school are so great why shouldn't they have to follow the same rules as public schools and take EVERYONE who applies?

Oh, LOL, sure. Public Schools fail because idiots like you keep voting for Tea 'tards and Republicans who cut Public School funding. When you fund Public Education...shocking here..... it does way better. And Public schools are far more accountable to education standards than charter schools and homeschool. Sorry.

If we don't like politicians we can vote them out.

If we don't like what a private company is doing we can stop buying their stuff I guess? Try to get a boycott to gain traction? Sounds like trying to throw a grain of sand at a giant boulder, expecting it to move the boulder.

Sounds to me like you were a pathetic failure who has to blame being a pathetic failure on others. Especially, you sound like someone no one in their right mind would want to work with, on account of being a whiny little git. If you had worked hard enough, you would have been a success. You were getting paid a lot. Too bad you weren't worth it.

I'd say the person who realizes they do not need to be educated and knows everything is probably much more smart than the person who feels they know incredibly little about the world and must learn more about it.  Which is why colleges are the dumbest institutions on the planet.  You'll learn much more about the world working on a farm than you will solving math problems or being a loser.  But good luck explaining to liberals that they're losers who need to get a life.  They don't read books that would teach them this.  Lol.
