My last question had asked what are our RIGHTS and what is a difference between PRIVLAGES and RIGHTS. Many of you state that education and housing are rights. The government feels the same way as you do, because currently they help provide those things. They have control, to insure you have the same RIGHT as everyone else. That you have that access, correct?
Please tell me how you feel the government has taken care of FREE Education and FREE housing, that you have a RIGHT to? The federal government got involved in Public schools in the late 40's and free housing came after WW2 for military families. Howdoes the government rate in these areas,since they took these RIGHTS over, in the efficiency and safety of both of these things. Thanks!

I don't see what housing for military members has to do with the general population? The government may tell you military housing is free, but it's not, it' s part of their pay. If they didn't provide housing they'd have to pay military members a lot more. My husband is a LT in the Navy and has a masters in engineering. He makes way less serving his country than he would as a civilian, and that's even including housing.
As for education, I have to say I think most public schools are lousy, and I don't think no child left behind is helping any. I send my children to public school because I can't afford private, but we supplement their education at home.

Okay, I really don't understand why school can be so hard for some. I went to HS in California. They have state competency exams that you have to pass before you can graduate. The school counselor really freaked me out about it, so I decided to take a Math Comp class so that I would be prepared. Keep in mind the first day I attended was the first day of the second quarter my Junior year and there were Freshman - Seniors in this class. Here is the first question that was asked on my first day:
"Who can tell me how many inches are in a foot?"
Seriously. . . how dumbed down do schools need to go to pass everyone and is this to the detriment of our future?
