Actually the individual schools get paid by a mechanism called "average daily attendance" so butts in the seat are important for the school.

Even though home schoolers pay property taxes that go to funding schools if those HS kids aren't in the seats the school doesn't get the bucks.

I was schooled, or put more honestly, I was institutionalized during the '70's.

#2 pencils and multiple choice scantron test for most subjects. Graded on the curve so kids like me who were good testers scores were often excluded from the curve.

It sucks to be punished for trying harder. The basic rule of our civilization seems to be - do just enough to get by.

And at what point do we draw the line? Do we start cutting arms and legs off children who are extremely athletic?

School never impressed me, growing up poor in the 70's was my parent's choice that I lived with (I hope I never drink powdered milk again). And the whole cold war bull**** being worried about Soviet nukes raining down. In those days if it wasn't the nukes that killed us it would be global cooling that would kill us. And making you feel ashamed for being born because of the constant talk of diminishing resources WE were wasting.

I knew by 5th grade I was never going to have kids, why would I bring someone into a terrible world?

What really surprised me was when my friends started having kids - they grew up seeing the same crap, yet they wanted little clones of themselves enough to ignore the pile of feces left to them by previous generations. Not only did they have kids, most became exactly like their parents and have voted for more debt to be be shouldered by their kids.

I think there are too many who sold their souls to the God of keeping-up-with-the-jones who honestly don't have a thing worth living for to change direction. They want to hit the wall hard, fast, and go splat without feeling a thing.

Adding onto what Chemman says, the homeschoolers worry public schools for a lot of other reasons.
See this: https://cei.org/blog/homeschooling-growt....

I'm with you that they SEEM not to care.... but when enough parents pull enough butts out of public school seats, then oh yes, they will indeed care.

And in the bigger picture when little johnny learns to READ, WRITE and actually do MATH, and then he has to complete against students of public schools that teach
CRT, LBGTQ+ and don't give F's...what do we really expect will happen? Who's going to design the next generation of airplanes or satellites?

Just as an aside, my late father was a Catholic high school graduate and was able to help me when I struggled with Math at a young age.
*I Thank Almighty God* he actually learned something in school instead of being bombarded by crap like CRT.


Because giving F's is racist: https://www.dailywire.com/news/minnesota....

Oh they care all right.

In Florida they lobby THE KIDS hard to NOT go to collegiate high school.

If you DO go, assuming you don't fail, you get BOTH a HS Diploma AND an Associates, and the cost to you is ZERO. Literal zero. Books, classes, all of it. Zero.

Why don't the high schools like it and why do they push the *KIDS* not to go?

Because about $8,000 a year PER KID walks over to the local community college for EVERY ONE OF THEM that does go.

They ran this **** on a friend of mine's daughter, HARD, to try to talk her out of it. When I explained to her WHY they were doing it she got VERY pissed off, went, and graduated. The middle finger flew high and proud.

My daughter didn't want to do it; that's her choice. It IS a ****-ton of work and you CAN fail like anything else. But a free 2-year degree is nothing to sneeze at.

It was not long ago that Garland wrote another letter that threatened states that were thinking of conducting forensic election audits. Mrs. Garland is employed by a firm that concerns itself with elections. Wish I knew more about what job that was. Seems like another potential conflict of interest.

Just what exactly do the say to the kids to convince them not to do it? That it's too hard and you have to do too much homework?

The only lobbying that I can think of that could possibly work would be appeal to non-academic activities such as athletics or music (marching band or jazz band). I can't imagine any other kind of appeal.

"Do we start cutting arms and legs off children who are extremely athletic?"

"Harrison Bergeron" was published in 1961, so it doesn't yet have the profile of other guides to modern living like 1984 or Brave New World, but the central idea seems to be incredibly popular among the "elites".

@Makoshark - A search on his wife turns up the very interesting "she used to work for a defense contractor but information about her later career is not immediately available". Is she a spook of some sort?

It can also shorten the amount of time (and cost) needed to get the 4-year degree as well. You could get a BSEE or a BSMSE at 20 years old!

Well, I could see staying with the local high school if I played trumpet in the jazz band or was on the football team, or a cheerleader if I were a hot chick.

But if I were motivated for that engineering degree and dreamed of the bigger world, I'd want to get the hell out.

How much longer before Gen's Ticker reads "The Invasion of Taiwan"? The COVID madness surely must be a precursor from 'Inflation is transitory' to 'Holy ****!'

Step 1) Global energy crisis
Step 2) Production comes to a halt
Step 3) Supply chains breakdown
Step 4) Inflation runs wild
Step 5) A global financial crisis

If we see $10,000/mo rent for 3B, $8,000/mo for 2B, and $5,000 for studio within a couple of years does the current COVID INSANITY then have a context that made sense in hindsight?

I've been reading Karl's posts for 10+ years now. The change has been gradual but nonetheless undeniable. Finally he's come to accept that there is no way to save this country. Maybe 40 years ago it was possible. Now, it's just a matter of time before everything implodes. Time to cue up the deer eating popcorn.

It's becoming an indefensible position for parents who give more than a casual **** about their kids to NOT pull them out of that system. I got my kid out of the government schools and I was by no means wealthy at the time. Of course that meant handing my kid over the Talibaptists for a few years but way better than government indoctrination center she would have been subjected to. If you send your children to Caesar to be educated, don't pretend to be surprised when they grow up to become Romans.

NAZI's. Remember, Obama tried to put this totalitarian on the Supreme Court.

What are they protesting? Eastern establishment made up bull**** they are feeding our kids. What should happen is the people should disenfranchise public schools entirely. They are a massive drain on our economy, serve no function other than to bring in totalitarian government and brainwash children.

In place of public schools, parents should be given a voucher, worth about 75% of what the per student cost, for schools is today. They should sell the facilities and pay off the bonds. The rest should be given back to the tax payers.

All the bull**** should be taken out of education. History should be taught, as it happened, not as it was made up, as is being today. The Prussian school technique should be outlawed and replaced with something that teaches people to think on their own. Mandatory school should end around age 13, smarter students being allowed to move to college and others being allowed to engage in learning how to make a living. The idea of putting 3 to 5 year old kids in school should also be dropped, as the primary reason for putting them there is to hard brainwash them, not to teach them life skill.

The idea totally made up bull**** is being forced as history, to the point they are going to bring in the FBI agent provocateurs, to create terror events they are going to stop and is straight out of the Hitler and Stalin gangster arena. The real truth about American history is people got into leaky ships, often with the clothes on their backs and came to America. They quit importing slaves in 1808 or thereabouts. The native Americans were in the way, just like someone has been in the way on every square inch of Earth occupied. People went into the middle of nowhere, with no support and settled the country.

The ancestors of the very people, who were behind slavery and human exploitation are now feeding us this bull****. Their ancestors quite often came from Europe with Title of Nobility privileges. One reason we fought the war was commerce was controlled by individuals who had grants of privilege over commerce.

As for school boards. Here, I noticed that half the people running had the term Doctor ahead of their name. What kind of doctor? I bet most, if not all were doctors of Education. What the hell does that mean? I believe it just might mean they were sent to school to totally **** up the education system. Remember, NAZI's and communists create the bureaucracies, not free societies. Is it any wonder the NAZI's in DC are suddenly concerned? Could it be the school boards that scorn the parents, because they are opposed to teaching NAZI/Communist bull**** are indoctrinated and trained in the form of creating NAZI and Communist societies and the parents are either going to find out or already have?

All the bull**** going on in DC has to have any thinking person concerned. The DOJ and FBI are criminal elements, not law elements. The Democrat Party has been using them as such, at least since Obama came to power and probably since Bill Clinton replaced the entire system, in 1993. Recall, one of the first things done under Clinton, was Waco, a raid on a building full of women and children. Maybe there were nuts in there, but there hadn't been any real crimes against persons committed by these people other than maybe the battle for the compound that occurred between sect members prior. It has been shown they could have arrested Koresh any time they liked, and he actually invited them in. That was a big story down here.

They are pushing either toward a totalitarian state or trying to force a revolution. If the **** hits the fan, people like we saw in the bathroom need to be located and made casualties, as they are the tools being utilized to push either of the 2 narratives, totalitarian government and potential revolution. I suspect they are a very small minority, maybe less than 2 million people.

In the meantime, Biden and his co-NAZI's are working on plots to seize our arms. He has basically threatened to use the military against us, while his administration is spending our money to create a woke military, that just might buy his BS. Nothing is impossible, when dealing with thieves.

@Capcomp: DC is full of this kind of crap. Too damn bad whatever hit the pentagon wasn't a nuke and they were all in town. About 50% of all crime on Earth would vaporize immediately.

During the Trump administration, I learned about how many skunks were married to other skunks. It isn't surprising a President, whose son is looting the world, for his daddy would appoint the worst of swampers as AG. Remember McCabe? Married to a Doctor, Clinton jock sniffer Terry McAuliffr slid over $600K. Rosenstein was married to someone. The entire place is full of skunks and they mate, but the women never change their last names. A city that produces nothing but misery, the world around is surrounded by 7 of the 10 wealthiest counties on Earth.

Until you realize these people have declared themselves, kings, princes, lords and other nobility, you will think they are someone. How do you get rid of vermin? Varmint guns and poison? Open your eyes. The NAZI's didn't lose WW II. Just the ones in Germany. They hid out in the US, melted the Republic and had kids, grandkids and great grandkids and they intermarried and took over DC.

We didn't have kindergarten when I was a child.
I started out in first grade.
Didn't seem to suffer.
Some children really do enjoy kindergarten, though.
I think they should be able to go when/if they are ready for and want to be in a structured play space.

It is such a lovely age.
I think being a kindergarten teacher would be fun.

I'm not crazy about the idea of vouchers for school. It sounds good but when government is in charge of handing out money, they'll find a way to strings on it. You don't have to have grown up in and around organized crime to know that people should be way more careful about who they let do favors for them.

But good on the other points. "Formal" schooling for kids should end at 8th grade. The high school system is probably one of the most expensive and destructive institutions in the former US. It's a forced, artificial society that doesn't succeed at producing much more than spree killers and legal adults that need a year of remedial classes in college to just barely get them up to college level work.

The same woke military that will be 100% up to date on all its boosters? Can't imagine they'll be in much of a state to be fighting total war against a pissed off and competent guerrilla force on its home turf.

I think you mean the neo-Marxists who left Germany before the war and sat it out here. They were not Nazis, but their descendants (both biological and intellectual) have indeed taken over many of our institutions.

In the 1950s there was a Senator from Wisconsin who tried to warn us that there was a cancer starting to grow in our society, but we did not listen; we did not surgically remove it while we had the chance. Since then it has metastasized and may very well be terminal.

Schools are not for learning, they are for incarcerating youth so American moms can work.

School may not seem like prison to adults who've sold their soul to the man, but to most kids, it's a form of prison.

Rules, guards, gangs... it's all there.

We stopped educating kids way before I was in school in the '70's.

Schools could be a good place to learn if there weren't 'professional' teachers indoctrinating students. The best teachers I've encountered are usually those who have had a hard time learning - and usually aren't teaching professionally. These are the folks at work who show an easier way to accomplish a task, or the buddy who shows you the trick to help with a car repair.

Being book smart can only take a person so far in life. I'm a good reader and test taker, so much of my education was a breeze. But being able to translate book learning into action is a whole different can of worms. I've had to unlearn a lot of the bull**** I thought was true in order to move forward.

A buddy gave me a book of essays by Marshall McLuhan called Essential McLuhan. He was an educator who looked at the effects of mass media on thought and social behavior. Interesting fellow.

I haven't finished the book yet, but my takeaway is that McLuhan argues that the printing press has had a negative effect on our lives because when we read about other's experiences, we feel as though we've had that experience. It allows us to collect memories of experiences we've never had. And because we have never really lived those experiences we are actually dumber than if we hadn't read about them because it gives us a false sense of experience.

Kinda above my pay grade intellectually, but does make me think about how different our world might be if we experienced life by living it rather than by reading about it.

Hi Karl -

I know that they just came out with the miss on the jobs report from last month and I was intrigued that the unemployment rate fell to 4.8 percent even while the participation rate dropped from declined from 61.7% to 61.6% as the civilian labor force somehow shrank in September by 183K to 161.35 million.

Was curious if you are still seeing a "vanishing" in the population numbers.
