Family First: "...public schools ...want to destroy them," etc.
I suspect that what you think of as "destroying," conservatives think of as "reforming." Education is a society's prime means of preserving and perpetuating its culture and heritage. Whoever controls Education, controls the future. It is unfortunate, but Progressives are, by definition, intent upon leaving the past behind, along with our culture and heritage, and building something completely foreign in its place. Conservatives, on the other had, are intent upon *conserving* -- not "preserving" -- the greatness of the past. We would ardently seek to reform anything that threatens our greatness. http://www.kirkcenter.org/index.php/detail/ten-conservative-principles/
