    Oooo, how that three hundred pounds amaze me
    When she gets down in the gravy
    God almighty, what a soulful groove
    When she gets down in the barbecue
    Three hundred pounds
    Tall as she round
    And every pound of that body so fine
    I can hardly b'lieve that it's mine - oh man!

    How long before state mandates get tied to private schools in order to accept public funds?

    Ain't happening here. Public education is BIG bidness & one of the easiest ways to steal tax dollars.

    Because why should someone who sends their kids to a private school pay taxes for public schools, which they don't use, then have to pay even more for the private school they send their children too?

    I'm of the opinion that funding for public schooling should be voluntary if the persons being taxed are not sending their children to those schools. If they believe in the system and want to fund it, or send their children there, go for it. If not, they shouldn't have to.

    This is a great plan. Parents should only have to pay for the school they are actually sending their children too.

    If private schools take state money they are also going to be expected to follow state mandates which is not going to happen for most.
    Here is the obvious thing-if state does do this how many tiny private schools are going to start popping up? Kinda like Covid money for small businesses. That was one of the biggest scams ever. All of a sudden everyone had a small business and was getting a free 20k.

    Exactly the Teachers Unions the Federal Government

    By what metric can you show me that kids have gotten smarter since the inception of the Department of Education in 1979?

    Its time to bust up big Ed.

    As far as using public money why should a parent who has a kid in private school be forced to pay for that kid and the taxes that bolster public school coffers that keep turning out folks who cant balance a check book dont know which end of a shovel digs and wouldnt know how to piss if Siri didnt tell them, but they know there are 200 plus genders. Those parents should get a break.


    It's absolutely a great thing to start putting the dollars in the backpacks. Yes, some schools will fail. But why would anyone be concerned about that it should be about the student.

    The schools taht can produce the best education & yes that may include a religious setting or it may not, but they all be rewarded instead of the monopoly that is currently in place!

    I agree. Public schools hold our kids hostage to the whims of mush-brained school admins and blue-haired groomers. Parents have lost control of the local school systems.

    As far as the accreditation BS most of that is all about passing the curriculum the Dept of Ed hands down to further increase memorization techniques and less critical thinking skills.

    I would much rather have the education system that existed prior to Dept of Ed.

    That group got us to the moon and built the SR-71 with a freaking slide ruler.

    The Dept of Ed was so good they produced a whole group of people who are now teaching the next generation and they dont even know what bathroom to use!

    It’s obvious some of y’all either slept through economics and civics classes or you didn’t even show up.

    The SC House and Senate are debating different versions of a school choice simultaneously.

    After the abortion decision of the State Supreme Court it may be wise to make it more difficult for them to legislate from the bench, again.
    Either write things worth reading, or do things worth writing.

    Unless any of those versions include refunding my wasted property tax dollars on a failed public school system that we choose not to expose our children to, then all those options are sh*t.

    The public schools in my district spend about 9K per student. That’s more than the tuition cost of any of the nearby private schools.

    If you accept government money, they will get legal standing to start telling you how to run things. That's exactly how the government worked their way into having any say in the definition of marriage. It started with giving married couples a tax break.

    And if DT would quit worrying about what the courts are gonna say and take the huge majority we have in the GA and ram through putting the dollars in the backpacks you and Jimmy would be compensated for your sacrifice. The new Iowa law is so broad my fear is some fraud could possibly take place but what other program doesnt have fraud, but as long as it busts up the monopoly it is well worth some initial fraud that will get weeded out eventually.

    My biggest fear would be some dead beat claiming homeschool and taking the money and not actually schooling the kid. I'm all for homeschooling, but that is the one problem I have with putting the money in the backpacks to homeschoolers. I'm all for ideas of how to counter my scenario.

    I thought about possibly doing a tax credit for the homeschooler because if you are truly homeschooling and doing it right one parent is busting their ass working while the other isnt and getting hammered on the taxes so that would be a huge relief, while keeping the dead beats from abusing it because they aren't gonna work anyway so the tax break will not help them.

    Then the other students whom choose to attend a private or public school would be allowed to doo so and whatever the difference is in cost goes back to the state and returned to the tax payer.

    Public schools would quickly have to tighten their belts and teachers would be able to command the salaries they deserved. I question how come it takes almost 2.5x more on average to educate a kid in Flo county public schools compared to the private counter parts which from experience turn out students much more ready for the real world & in the last 20-25 years give them critical thinking skills verses meorizational skills.

    Because the public system, instead of economics of scale, has way more overhead.
