With municipalities and school districts all over the country going bankrupt, and money nowhere to be found (except wall street), American parents will soon be asked to pay for their children’s high school education (as we do now for college), or let them languish at home or in the streets, while they’re busy working two jobs (or looking for work) to make ends meet.

With municipalities and school districts all over the country going bankrupt, and money nowhere to be found (except wall street),  American parents will soon be asked to pay for their children’s high school education (as we do now for college), or let them languish at home or in the streets, while they’re busy working two jobs (or looking for work) to make ends meet.

The public school district in the city of Erie, Pennsylvania is considering massive cuts that would create potentially costly and disruptive barriers to any of its students interested in obtaining an education past the eighth grade.

The district is currently facing a deficit of more than $10.3 million. Over $6 million in cuts have already been decided upon, leaving $4.3 million more to be cut. As a result, Superintendent Dr. Jay Badams has proposed to close all four of the city’s public high schools. Erie residents wishing to obtain an education past eighth…

  1. Good! Public education is mind control and death! Let the parents get off of social media and take some responsibility for raising and educating their children and themselves!

    • To be fair to parents, sojourner, most parents are working their butts off at 2 to 3 jobs just to pay for shelter and food. This is why nearly 1/3 of all American kids live in poverty. A parent who quits their job to home school their kid is committing the child to a life of squalor, violence and inadequate nutrition. Unless they are lucky enough to live in a community where family, friends and neighbors help look after them financially. The absolute number of these intentional communities is steadily increasing, but they are still in the minority.

      • I understand that not all parents can do this. I hear you.

        But many can, and they should, bu they don’t.

        I know parents who have worked and homeschooled their children at the same time, and these young people are all, by far, much better off than those in the public propaganda machinery, the school to prison pipeline.

        Oh yes, and these young people can converse, write, compute, problem solve, and they are creative as well. They are everything most public school graduates/drop-outs are not today.

        We need to get back to a place where we raise and educate our children, and not the state.

          • Agreed! I more than agree!

            But there are now, all around the country, homeschooling cooperatives/organizations, and not all of these have religious affiliations. The idea that homeschooling means the parents have to do the teaching is false, and has been for a long, long time. So that excuse is invalid!

            The real problem is (even among many of the awake and aware who hate government mind control) many folks still don’t want true individual freedom; they still desire, to some extent, a nanny state to keep other people and their children in line with their political beliefs and agendas. And compulsory public education is the perfect tool for this kind of hypocritical despotism.

            This is not directed at you, Tube, or Dr B! I’m sure both of you know of the people I am referring to here!
