    What the hell do you base that on?

    I am not a blind supporter of unions as some DKOSSERS tend to be. But I do strongly support the right for people to join a union and oppose companies that try to discourage that.

      Sometimes I wonder if some of our fellow DKOSSERS are more interested in protecting teachers union turf than actually expanding what the term "Publicly funded education" is.
      This is what you offered on the topic to me.

      Then, to back up my point that you're not interested in solving the problems that plague far too many of our communities, you say this to Joseph Rainmound

      I am sure it is one fo the reasons. But some parents in disadvantaged areas who are more motivated than their peer parents to improve things for their kids can't wait a decade for social reforms and public policy improvements to get their kids a better education. Just pumping in more money wont magically improve their schools.
      So if you don't want to acknowledge that money to cure our social ills isn't the main issue, I'll assume that you're launching an indirect attack on the school system for a reason other than the lack of funding.

        not needed.

        60 Minutes had this venture capital guy who thought he could fix a school he "adopted" by pumping in money. The results were not better. He had to change the way things were done to get any results.
