Why should people seperate their kids to teach different ideas or beliefs? Why not just split the school and have one half of the classes teach creation, and the other half teach evolution? And allow the parents and kids choose what is taught to their children.
Private schools can be expensive, and very rarely does the same tax dollar that pays for public school cover the cost for private school. And from what I understand, not every state allows you to do this with your tax dollar. For when they did a survey on how many would actually do this, more than 50% wanted their kids out of public schools for various reasons, mainly violence. So this would ruin the public school system, and the government would have to admit to failure in this area. So I don't think the private school thing will ever work. It would have to be something put into the school as a choice, which is how I think it should be.
I think more choice in school would be awesome, however I still am hoping to see the voucher plan one day come into play.
One thing that needs to change in my opinion is that they need to not have a law that says kids must attend school.
Because though you can force a kid to be in school, you can never force them to learn or want to learn.
When you force all kids to attend, you place the ones that despise being there along side the ones who wish to really learn, and you have problems.
Voilent kids are amoung some of the ones who don't wish to be there, they disrupt classes, threaten and intimidate teachers at times.
A voucher plan would allow, kids who attend failing schools to be transferred to better school atmospheres, And obtain the education they diserve.
And this would stock pile all the ones who don't want an education in the old failing schools, where they can all fail in peace without disrupting anyone.
This plan was shot down also due to the fact evolution teaching would have taken a big hit, with not being taught in the Christian private schools, as the majoridy of America are Christians.
But we can still make an impact, by education and spreading the message of Creation to everyone.
