Actually, I-brand the so called "greatest" generation had no DoE and smaller more local community schools. Even state level education bureaucracy was much smaller. Schools, including the private schools, were smaller, more locally and parent controlled. Discipline was the rule and not the exception. Bad teachers were expelled by the communities, rather than shielded by their unions.
"The article also mentioned the state GOP’s frustration at being unable to capture the governor’s mansion," This is total horsecr@p. The GOP could've won it the last time. But instead of supporting the guy who could've won (Phil Moffett), they torpedoed him because he wasn't one of the good ole boy big gubumint repubs. Moffett, who ran with just a tenth of the money that the establishment threw to David Williams, still garnered 38% of the vote to Williams' 48% during the primary. But the money differential still wasn't enough to secure the primary for the lying RINO Williams. Moffett who was a popular busnissman from the largest city (Louisville) would've still pulled out the primary win; so the establishment got another Louisville repub to stay in the race to siphon off his votes. So Ms. Coleslaw (actually Holsclaw) took 14% of the primary votes. It was just another example of the GOP preferring their kin big gubamint brothers/sisters in the dem wing winning, rather than supporting someone in their own party who is loyal to the people and constitution over the party establishment. The GOP can gripe and whine all they want. They've proven that they are nothing more than the other wing of the big gubamint party.
"This struggle is not going to be won by my generation".....because school choice represents a shift of power away from the federal gubamint and back to the states and people. Therefor we will talk about it nicely in public, but kill any movement or initiative for it behind the scenes in Congress. Any Congressmen who tries too hard to get school choice for the people, will get a beat-down just like those Congressmen who didn't vote for me to be Speaker.

Iran may or may not be developing a bomb, they may or may not be doing lots of things. Right now I'm more worried about who is getting us $17+ Trillion in debt, who is spying on US citizens without a warrant, forcing us to by something we don't want, forcing a broken education system on us, detaining us without due process,....basically just p!ssing all over the Constitution "for our own good". Sorry. I'm more worried about the enemy in my backyard than one 8000 miles away.
What education today doesn't contain indoctrination?? I'd much rather be indoctrinated about freedom & liberty than the DNC/RNC gubamint subservience educational institutes (DoE).
Last time I voted democrat was the vote I gave GWB back in 2000.
Hmmmm...no party loyalists here to demonize Paul....must still be too busy celebrating Cromnibus.
Well Ron, I'll give the same response I gave to the TH piece that covered how 70% of Americans want school-choice; Since it would represent a fundamental shift of power from the Federal Gubamint back to the states (and people); both branches of the Big Gubamint Party (DNC/RNC) will give it only lip service and find a way to kill any initiative in Congress to do something about it.
