How To Get A Better Education

By sending your kids to a school in a district other than the one you live in.
That, is what is being discussedd in this Wall Street Journal opinion article.

If you don’t go to read the whole article, think about this:

Other school districts use services like VerifyResidence.com, which provides “the latest in covert video technology and digital photographic equipment to photograph, videotape, and document” children going from their house to school. School districts can enroll in the company’s rewards program, which awards anonymous tipsters $250 checks for reporting out-of-district students.

Only in a world where irony is dead could people not marvel at concerned parents being prosecuted for stealing a free public education for their children.

And then there is this:

The defining difference between the two schools, writes the novel’s narrator, is parents: At the good school, “The parents were too American, too aware of the rights granted them by their Constitution to accept injustices meekly. They could not be bulldozed and exploited as could the immigrants and the second-generation Americans.”

Last, the point:

Students are still poisoned by low expectations, their parents are still getting bulldozed.

This is a very real, and far reaching, life-altering, problem.
It is the reason that so many are not learning truth, correct history and skills to better their chances for their future.

I am not advocating breaking the law.

I am advocating this issue needs honest, serious discussion and real solutions.

Otherwise, our culture changes. It is changing. And not for the better.
