  •  There is no guarantee that public schools will be (4+ / 0-)

    less indoctrinating.  The two advantages of public schools are 1)they at least try to education everyone and 2)there is still a little public accountability through the voting booth.

    The fact is that corporate politicians in the lastthirty years have made very effort to dry up funds for public schools and right now are looking for any way to break unions and close public schools instead of really trying to reform them.  That's because, along with the charter schools, is a specific agenda to privatize and corporatize our public schools -- which will eventually (and has been shown to be increasingly true as we get some data on charters)for their own purposes.  It's the new American form of "structural adjustment" that we visited on the 3rd world and now want to bring home.

    Our best hope of good schools is keeping the comunity - students, parents, teachers --involved in the decision making process.
