http://nation.foxnews.com ^ | september 21, 2013

The 100% literacy rate makes up for the high cost. Oh... wait.

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!

Oh, I failed to mention a near perfect solution to the TP "problem". Parents could get together and gift a few cases to your local government school. I almost said "neighborhood school" but they went the way of the Dodo bird. There may be room on the bus that hauls YOUR kid 26 miles to ANOTHER neighborhood.

The best was when an older adult caller to Rush Limbaugh explained his theory on how one wipes with 1 square of TP.

1. Fold it in half twice (into 4ths).
2. Tear out the center piece and set it aside for later.
3. Unfold the TP square.
4. Fit the square over your index finger.
5..... something something something....
6. Remove the square and deposit it in the commode.
7. Use the small piece from step 2 to clean the smut out from under your fingernail!

Salary figures provided by the Chicago Public Schools show teachers here have the highest average salary of any city in the nation. It works out to about $76,000 per year before “benefits”.

The waste of money and outright theft in these schools is beyond belief. Every last bureaucrat should be fired and never allowed to work in education again.

But that would only be in a sane world that still believes in justice.
