#1 Most parents are so busy working and taking care of their families that it never occurs to them to run for school board. But they better start thinking about it.

#2 ^No. They better start looking for good private tutors.

#3 It costs money to hire a tutor or to pay for a private school and then you're still stuck paying taxes for the public schools. It's cheaper to fix the schools.

#5 No you can't fix public schools, at least not in America. I suspect the system will evolve into go your own way with periodic testing for credentials for those who want to pursue them.

#6 ^Except, they'll not give up without a fight - neither the teachers' unions nor the institutions of "higher learning".

#7 ^ They need to be brought to heel.

#8 ^Good luck - but they're fighting for their lives.

#9 The parents are fighting for their children.

#10 #4 You can't fix public schools.

This is correct. Even with supposed "local control," a parent or group of parents is up against a leviathan. You can't override the teachers unions. Better to leave the public schools entirely
