And we aren't moving towards that in your lifetime EVER.
I'm just as shocked as you are that the 30 or so of you who are constantly persecuted by the rest of us haven't packed your bags and started something new where we couldn't get you. So I'll assume you've decided the system we have now is better than the system you could create. Either that or you don't really believe all the "don't tax me bro" BS you spew. Clearly freedom from the government isn't the most important thing in your life. It's just what you spend the most time whining about.
Amen brother. The lack of reasoning and critical thinking in this thread is a tragic comedy. I want to respond to the insanity, but at the same time I realize the futility in explaining the reality of the world we're actually living in versus some utopian dream that has so many philosophical deficiencies in it's theory it would never actually be applicable, to some people on the internet is near pointless.
I'm hopefully that a vast majority of the people can grasp the basic concept of the argument in this thread, and it's still a minority that either don't get it, or just want to argue a mute point.
The two basic points are:
1) You're free to teach whatever you want to your kids. But if society has collectively agreed to fund a public education system, we better have standards set in place that eliminate ythe teaching of unfounded beliefs and junk science.
2) The school voucher system provides more options for parents/students, but it also undermines our current educational standards. You can argue what you want, but public education teachers are more highly educated and held to a much higher set of standards than their private school counterparts. School vouchers are undermining these standards and can potentially completely undermine public education and create more private schools teaching junk science and belief systems.
