    So that they can feel free to challenge such transparent propagandistic nonsense without fear of professional repercussions. This is why, while truly private schools independant of the public school system (and thus forced to compete for tuition dollars with other private schools through academic excellence) are perfectly fine, privatizing public schools through charters or vouchers is a horrible idea, because public money funneled to private corporations be they schools or health insurers or hospitals or military contracters will always lead to fraud and abuse. ALWAYS.

    I believe that there's a proper place for public-private partnerships, but this isn't one of them. There are things that government should keep in-house.
