re: "Politicians are NOT going to allow the money to go to any 3 toothed bubba that claims to be a school."

Maybe the problem there is that politicians are collecting and handing out money to schools. And maybe that is exacerbated by consolidation of school powers away from the most local, smallest unit of education -- the family.

Yes…. Sorta.

Lots of folks have crap/indifferent/addicted parents.

Those folks will not, ever, spend money to educate their kids.

Now, if we change some more laws, to permit churches, etc to offer boarding schools, and let a kid chose to attend one, rather than return to his parents, it might work.

I would far prefer to donate to a charity school, which offers to educate kids in stuff I think is important (at the minimum, formal logic and civics), than to pay taxes to provide money to be distributed to parents, but that is still a far better option than having to pay to fund a slush fund for cronies, which uses education as a cover.

I can agree with this. My point is take the monopoly away from governmental grooming / indoctrination centers. THEN work to improve from there. There should be some trial, which will involve error. I doubt more error, than happens currently though as private entities will be held liable.

It’s amazing how much less money gets spent, when liens and incarceration are a possible consequence of misappropriation.
