Very little makes my blood boil more than issues surrounding our public schools. The ingratitude of people "in the system" just amazes me. School districts going on strike because they are "only" getting a 3% raise. Or because they might have to pay 3% of their health premium. Or raising property taxes so they can build a million dollar FOOTBALL stadium.
You want to see the public school system excel? Do away with the unions. Let the great teachers excel... Let the bad teachers pound sand. Let parents choose what school their kid goes to. Allow teachers to kick disruptive students out.
But if I could change only one thing? Stop funding schools with property taxes. Increase the sales tax. My home should be MY home. I should not be renting it from the government.
