    Public schools don't get to "pick." Within their district, they must accept all students. And wealthy people frequently have kids that have special needs that have nothing to do with income.

    True but when you let public money intended to fund public schools be used for charter or private schools, the parents then get to pick and take the money with them leaving public schools even more unevenly funded.

    ^^This^^

    Our local school district was able to provide great support for my son during all his years with the district. That would not have been available anywhere else. But then again I live in school district that get's high rantings across the board.

    So you are on record, you support babysitting vs education.

    You see I support education, I don't care if it is achieved at a Private, Public, Charter, or Homeschool

    let me explain this with an antidote

    I order a package from Amazon... I don't care if they ship it by US Mail, UPS, FedEx, Drone, kid on a bike.. as long as the package arrives on time and undamaged.

    If the public school sucks, CHILDREN NEED A WAY OUT.

    if A PRIVATE school sucks it is not going to be in business long

    Charter school (private or Public) sucks it will not attract children

    Homeschool children must take proficiency tests every year. if they do not meet expectations they cannot be homeschooled

    So why not fund EDUCATION not a school system. of any type.
