Hmmm, that because of the Union pensions-to-the-moon and tenure-0f-misfits? Well, gee, you make your decisions and then live with the consequences, it seems to me. How about that one-square-per-wipe idea that the Hollywood Lefties floated a couple of years back?

With that much ‘S’ passing for reasoned logic in the school system, is it any wonder why they can’t afford enough toilet tissue?

On the bright side, the likelihood of houses being toilet papered at Halloween is reduced. On the negative side, the substitute can be alarming in more ways than one.

Please always refer to them as GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS (or, if you prefer, the more accurate term GOVERNMENT INDOCTRINATION CENTERS).

“Public schools” cause folks to believe that these Marxist controlled institutions somehow belong to the public.

THEY DO NOT and HAVE NOT for many decades!
