Unfortunately only a fraction goes towards the students.

Kinda like how we throw a shitload of money at the military yet our soldiers that are actually fighting had trouble getting body armor.

Almost seems like a pattern. Administraters and bureaucrats are basically a bunch of Somali warlords but with nicer desks.

Nothing is obscene provided it is done in bad taste.

We're also an industrialized, wealthy nation. We also actually give a sh*t about our special needs kids. We have a very high rate of childhood poverty. We are not a small, homogeneous population. We have disparity between rich and poor school districts.

If you only knew the battles with IEPs and that's in a good school district...

Teaching smart, motivated students really makes teaching a lot more pleasant.



If you are going to be a teacher I recommend doing that.


incompetence is preferable to malice.

I don't like the command and control trend I see in education.

Yeah but how else are you going to create loyal, unquestioning subjects?

Don't kid yourself that the private sector is any better.

With our patchwork system of private health insurance we spend way more on healthcare than any other country with worse outcomes.

Oh I'm not, but it is marginally better just because private sector companies need to make money, the government can run at a deficit infinitely.

The worst part of the private sector is that they will fook over their employees at the drop of a hat if it increases corporate and shareholder profit. That's one aspect you don't really have in the public sector. I got this lesson all of four months out of college and have seen it play out repeatedly over the years.
