Perhaps the trend of public shcool failure will trend parents to have their kids attend online schools as well as private schools. When you look at the cost of public schools it is astonomical and there need to be a balance of cost between public school education and private school education. However, when I see the result of the private school student and the public school student, I cringe to think of the hundreds of billions waisted just to employ adults who capitlize on opportunitiy to make money off the taxpayer and provide nothing towards the education of students. Sure we can say it makes for analysis, and evaluation, and make the job easier for adults. But the bottom line is, the end product and the goal is not acheived. Hence the futureless ideology and direction of public education, and the failure of incompetent graduates who do not have the skills to provide leadership and innovation for the USA. If I could choose my investment in education systems, I would allways bet on the private school, as they have better history of outcomes. However, I do invest in public school debt, because they have more union power over politicians and taxpayers, and I can make a decent profit off their intrest debt alone. I know its sad to invest in someones failures for profit, but I do not see private schools in debt. It's like short selling stocks, but in this case there is no bottom, and the trend will always be stong as long as schools continu to demand more money from States that have no money in their budgets.
