End public education

November 18, 2012 

THOR BRADSHAW, Kennewick

I say we end the school system as a whole. Parents should be accountable for their children and teach them their education.

Since when did we get this entitlement society where no one is responsible for himself or his own choices? Pop out kids and expect the society to just keep giving. You want to not pay high property taxes, end the school system.

You can teach your kids better than a classroom of kids. Parents should all home school. You want the community to teach the kids, and you want jobs for your neighbors, then pay them as individuals and not as government thieves who just say you have to pay for your neighbors 15 kids who have no accountability. The internet has made it even better to home school.
