BAH. END the government monopoly on education NOW!
Public schools should exist to educate the 5% who are the problems, the destitute and the unteachable.
The other 95% should be privately educated or at home.
Some points valid. However, a pet peeve to me is the constant complaining of teaching to the test. If you teach a kid fundamentals, math skills, reading comprehension, etc...the kid will have no problem passing a test.
