Public schools in 2022 Are NOT public, never were, especially in 2022. People often point to America’s public education system as “one of the best features of America.” I was of the opinion at first, but then I started doing some research, here is what I learned.
Now I understand that public school, sometimes known as a government school, is one of the most problematic aspects of the American education system. It’s a government monopoly that’s completely strangling competitiveness. It never gets any better.
Most services are getting better. They are getting quicker, faster, and more affordable. But not monopolies controlled by the government. The educational system in public schools is less flexible, less interesting, more expensive, and much more divided than the educational system in educational institutions.
I prefer to refer to them as “government” schools rather than “public” schools because there is very little to them that is “public.” The wider populace does not have the ability to choose the institutions, educators, programs, or fees for their children’s education.
In contrast, grocery stores are considered “private,” despite the fact that anyone can shop there. You are welcome to stroll in at any time of day or night. Just give it a shot with the public school where your child attends. You run the risk of being detained.
Now, though, there is a drive toward education reform, which has provided public schools with some measure of rivalry. There is opposition from private institutions, independent schools, voucher programs, student tax credits, as well as the Internet. It’s true that not all of the options are viable, but healthy competition helps drive out the ineffective ones while encouraging the successful ones to flourish.
All children will benefit from this.
However, so far, the options are only accessible to a limited number of children. Union and bureaucracies are opposed to competitiveness and will employ their political weight to eliminate it wherever possible. However, they are suffering a loss over time.
They spent years attempting to abolish homeschooling, yet eventually gave up. These days, homeschooled students perform better on standardized tests and have an easier time getting into university. Some members of the government’s stranglehold on education argue, though, that children who are educated at home will still not develop the necessary social skills (in the sense of interacting with peers, that is, not in the sense of belonging to the government).
However, homeschooled children take part in a wide range of social activities alongside fellow homeschooling households. These activities include getting involved inside the theatre, dance, karate, as well as other courses that the majority of children take, while others may simply dream that they could.
Homeschooled kids do perfectly fine. They are successful in spite of the absence of official oversight.
Many people who support public schools will argue that their institutions are what make the United States of America a “melting pot.” In schools that are funded by the government, students of many ethnic and racial backgrounds as well as income levels coexist.
Keeping low-income children mired in a system that is badly managed is not a service that we are providing for them. If you care deeply about “the public,” you really shouldn’t prevent them from going to facilities where they can receive a decent experience and education.
Having said that, it’s STILL NOT A PUBLIC SCHOOL 2022, IT’S A GOVERNMENT SCHOOL.
