Why doesnt the Left trust the poor to choose their childrens schools? That question leaps to mind as we enter National School Choice Week. (The question is a sequel to an earlier one, Why doesnt the Left trust the law-abiding poor to own guns? which I considered in an earlier post.)
After all, nearly everyone agrees that the atrocious education provided by most public schools that serve the poor is a tragedy for the innocent children involved. The Left typically expresses outrage over inequality, yet one of the starkest inequalities between the poor and the more affluent is the latters ability to choose the public (and private) schools their children will attend. Worse, the typical school with a poor population is a powerful drag upon its students future opportunities and prosperity.

Their programs are mostly inner-city minority, and the attention is not given to the children; it is focused on the ObamaPhones, the SNAP, WICs, EITC, Section 8 and all the rest that goes to their single parent.
Greater school choice would benefit every child, but the poor need it most of all.
...the greatest school in the world is only as good as its worst students...until those who participate in the process learn that they are there to learn, nothing will change...the public school vision of educating every child fails, because not every child belongs in such a learning situation...
...many would be better served with a system of paid apprenticeships, regardless of age, rather than attending a school, where their main goal is to disrupt the learning process...they would learn humility, and the consequences of bad choices by not getting paid for goofing off...
And then they don't need left-wing politicians any more.
Each decade that goes by we have smaller and smaller % of children.
To be honest how well schooled they are seems of little consequence to their existences and thus our continued existences as a civilization.
This is a very enlightening article that lays out all the fact regarding the direr straights of our civilization:
We need to be focused upon creating “large famlies” again or there won’t be a future for our civilization much less our party.
From historic and foreign example there is very little in terms of policy our Government have done to address this cultural problem, and the hour is already too late to avoid the consquences. With small young populations the burdens of supporting our civilization will become all that much more difficult to bare.
Perhaps a silver-lining may collapse or become meaningless forcing people to look to their own children and thus have more of them to mitigate this problem.
But that of course requires awareness and perpetration during the relatively small ~20 year window in which women can have children.
I want to believe that we will bounce back if we can effect this cuture change, as this article suggest.
But that means making our families the future, by actively working to have large families.
Until and while that happens expect greater degrees of depression and relative poverty because the demographic piroment of our civilization is now and will increasingly be upside down. IT WILL BE A STRUGGLE to make it thou this peroid!
