Government school: place of learning or glorified day care?

I think the answer depends largely on parents and teachers. Children can learn in the public school system but only with supportive parents and teachers.

They can be spectacular schools. They can also be horrible schools.

Got an inner city highschool gets fail grades since no child left behind. Lots of lawyers, etc still send their kids. They have a great AP section.

They're Government education centers for indoctrination. Then there's the anti-American, Communist led, Teacher's unions that have great influence on the corrupt Department of Education.

Neither. Some indoctrination, but mostly day care.

My school consists of little teaching and a bunch of evaluating.

Our schools are far from perfect but I wouldn't call them daycares or babysitters.

I'm going to hope it "day care" because quality Early Childhood Education philosophy would do WONDERS for our K-12 system

Spoken like a true authoritarian statist.

I think he meant k-12 was just daycare. I can't find our thread from yesterday that we were going to continue. Did it get deleted?

I know what he meant - my point was that K-12 could use some early childhood philosophy to help "fix" what's broken - then Pinky called me some name. Our debate thread got closed, but I started another so we could continue - you two must not

Well, I can fix that. Following.

If you have an independent mind, it can be a place of learning. You learn the other side's arguments and how to pick them apart. If you speak up, you learn how to speak publicly and hold your own in a debate. And they have other resources to use too.

More indoctrination than anything.

Exactly. Indoctrination to mindlessly follow.

Fill out the forms, don't be different, submit to authority, do as you're told
