when the student loan bubble pops we all will pay for it don't worry. They make college so expesive but then also put out easy to get loans for students. The artifical market response is school costs out of control.

Citizen, place your newborn fetus in the cradle-to-grave collective and slowly back away. Don't do anything crazy like attempting to instill morals or (gasp) invoke the parental instincts of the sperm donor.

I know a few parents who probably wish their kids didn't belong to them.

Don't forget if you don't want baby rip it from the mothers womb and discard in trash.

Seriously 10 thousand yrs from now if some advanced race is studying our culture what would they think of abortion?

People like you makes me wish sometimes that parents could have a retroactive stand on abortion

You never saw bias in textbooks? Some kind of ideological lean?
Conservative State Board of Education across the country have been rewriting history and social studies in primary and secondary education for years and you want to point out bias in college text books. There is bias in text books but not liberal or progressive as you claim.

This was a really interesting (and balanced) read on education and indoctrination. Zealots need not apply.

The problem is students borrow 100 to 150 thousand dollars to earn a worthless degree in Psychology, Sociology or even worse Communications or Hospitality/Tourism. If you can find a job and that's a big if, your starting salary will be around 30K with a max of 50K.

Which leaves you living in your grand parent’s basement and pounding on the keyboard all day and night as an internet guru or chatting online with sexy babes?

Don't be jealous because he hangs out and chats with babes online all day. Besides, he's training to be a cage fighter.

I don't like her choice of words but isn't she just saying that as a society we all have a common interest in educating children? ...Even if you don't have kids you should want to invest in education because you don't want the generation coming after you to be stupid?

Educating children and trying to separate a mother bear from her cub are two different things. A parent can have total control of their child and still see they receive a proper education. The educators need to concentrate on the three R's and leave rest to the nuclear family

...But isn't that part of one's complete education? Are you not at a young age separated from your parents and taken to a preschool or knidergaten to not only learn how to read and write but also to develop interpersonal social skills that cannot necessarily be taught in the home? Is not a free public school education not the cornerstone of a free society? Should we not as a collective prioritize the ideal that everybody has equal oppertunities regardless of whether they are born into a traditional nuclear family or not?

According to the right, it's not.

Despite:

“The whole people must take upon themselves the education of the whole people and be willing to bear the expenses of it. There should not be a district of one mile square, without a school in it, not founded by a charitable individual, but maintained at the public expense of the people themselves.”— John Adams 1785

No. That would be the family. Even the best schools make for a piss poor substitute.

Some children enjoy school more than their homes.

I'm not sure enjoyment is always the best measure.

But if what you're getting at is that school is better than home for many, I've seen that in real life, and sadly it happens.

But the lowest common denominator is not ideal. What's better for some is rarely the best for all.

Not every child is born into a loving family. I agree that children need a stable support system in which to thrive, but, it is sheer enlightenment, critical thinking, and intellectual enrichment that drives at the very heart of what is written in the Declaration of Independence. Where a great parent is a child's moral compass, a great teacher, a great mentor is their intellectual one.
