Public Schooling is a form of `Welfare'

Posted by   + Show Post

I don't personally care who qualifies for FS, and I don't know too much about it, either.  I do know that there is a lot of FS haters on this site whom find no good reason for anyone to ever receive any type of assistance. 

 It got me thinking..........

Public Schooling is a `freebie' too.  Sure. you can say you pay taxes, but those taxes we pay are apparently going to every `public' program in some way, shape or form. When you opt to send your child to a public school anywhere in this country than I'd say you pretty much gave up your right to bitch about families on PA because your child is receiving a `free education'.   I would think that most people would want more for their children than a public school education.  College is NOT the only form of edu that parents should be required to pony up their dollars for. 

(And, no, my children do not attend public school.)

Uh, no it's not. There are no income qualification to go to public school. Welfare always has an income component. You annoyed me too much with " I would think that most people would want more for their children than a public school education. " to actually want to have any more of a conversation with you.

Again this depends on where you live. You make a LOT of generalizations.

Quoting MeAndTommyLee:

That is true, but look at the state of them?  I think a lot of the idea of `socialism', but public schools just suck.

Oh...is this a new way to try and brag? Good to know your kids don't go to that hell that is public school. I was concerned, truly.

Plus, you have to do fundraisers. I didn't know having a child meant that you would become a salesman.

Kids going to school is law so I don't really see it as welfare.

Property taxes pay for public school. It's not PA.
