    What children are mostly learning is math, science, english, history...what's wrong with this?

    If parents really wanted the responsibility of educating their kids everyone would be home schooling.

    Assuming the charity school could get enough money together for a building.

    I don't get this. Maybe I'm missing something. Where's the "Pay to send your kid to private school" option. Oh, would that be corporate? Yeah, that.

    If you read my first post you'll see that I said "assume you don't have the resources to send your kid to a tuition supported school"

    Kids don't get socialized if they are home schooled, also it's a big burden on the parents.

    I think this poll turned into a big ball of FAIL, and we're all at fault.

    Without public funding the burden remains on the parents, corporate and charity schools don't exist and probably never could on a large scale.

    Why not?

    Without the burden of taxation the population would have much more free capitol to invest in charities they feel ideological connections to.

    Corporations certainly have enough money, especially since it would guarantee them a well trained workforce.
