The Anti-Educational Effects of Public Schools

I’ve always had a problem with the public school system, and really with America’s mindset concerning education in general. But only recently have I become aware of just how destructive the government’s role in our education system is. People gasp at the proposition of decreasing the amount of money given to public schooling – don’t you want our children to be educated? The truth is, reducing the amount of government intervention (yes, that includes federal money)  in schools would very drastically and very quickly improve the quality of genuine education among students.

Just imagine – a world in which textbooks are not issued by people with political incentives, but by people with the desire actually educate. That’s the kind of world I’d love to live in, and the kind of world I’m willing to help create.
