    You believe your opinion, your stating something makes it true??   Give me some facts with sources.  

    Even if you could prove your opinion to be based on facts, being in the majority does not make it right.  Look at history.  Many things the majority accepted, believed, legislated, turned out to be unacceptable later on.  

    You can believe in the privatization of education all you want.  You have the right to do so.  But your choice is not necessarily the best, smartest and it is certainly not for the greater good.

    Again any one claiming to be progressive and still rooting for turning the public sector into for profit/private endeavors needs to do a lot a research.  The "common good" is for, of and by the people.  Privatization, investment companies and chartering are using public funds for private profit.   In the end, dollar signs on the heads of poor children is bad for us all.
