[Murica] How School Choice Turns Education Into a Commodity

https://www.theatlantic.com/education/ar...om/523089/

I actually like the idea that Arizona is trying to do though; instead of forcing kids to go to school, you can use those funds to help them still get education if they don't wish to go to school. It sounds solid, at least in concept.

Unfortunately this shit is being implemented by the GOP and their band of crazies trying to get Republican Jesus back in schools.

Interesting. I usually(notice the I)see people who are anti-school more inclined to ideas like school choice. Good point and although I don't agree with some of the points in the article, I am open for discussion.

Students have become commodities, not surprising even the education itself has been commoditized.

School choices allows for more wiggle room with navigating the education system. It's too bad that the issue seems to be much more partisan than it should be :/.

Of course, the issue more or so has become an issue of, "who is the right party" rather than "how WE could educate our children."

Of course, rather than pay attention to the needs of the youth, the educational system has become a bastion on how one part supposedly is "surperior" to another.

Yeah and it's fucking annoying. Politics have basically become sports in this country where people think of their parties as teams.

The GOP has a heavy hand in this shit (Ted Cruz, Mitch McConnell fuck I hate that guy, Paul Ryan, Jason Chaffetz, etc) but the left isn't 100% innocent either (Bernie or Bust, etc). What the fuck happened to legitimate compromise and rational arguments from both sides?

What bothers me about Democrats (coming from someone who identifies as a slight liberal with strong libertarian ideals) is that a lot of them pretty much believe that throwing money at the system will fix things instead of throwing that money on defense, even though the US spends enough money as it is on education. Shit is still terrible.

Again, I'm not blaming one party or the other. I'm just fucking sick that school reform is a partisan issue now and that both sides are like a blindfolded drunk darts game. They're really off the damn mark.
