    Just out of curiosity, are you against public elementary and secondary schools, as well?

    Should every child be entitled to a free educational system? Or should it only be available to newborns that test satisfactorily on their APGAR?

    It's a racket for the banks and corporations.
    Socialized training for their profits.
    Since Reagan they close down manufacturing which had unions and companies training kids right out of school. And began preaching that every kid should aspire to college.
    They shoved off training their employees, healthcare, and soon pensions onto the public taxpayers.

    And corporate banks get interest on every dollar loaned to students and every building built.
    Yet they are the teachers of capitalism.

    I'm surprised parents aren't charged with child abuse if they don't send the kids to college. Then they could Jack up the price even higher.
    We live in the land of make believe.
    All they do is cut the workforce for their own gain, backstab, cheat and lie....sink good companies and move on.
    If I were king I'd executive order all but 3 closed. Only straight A students would go. The rest could bust ass like me.

    Parents should be allowed to shop on the free market. ...everything needs space to grow.....let Trump get in there for 4 yrs men "his ego will push him and his contacts will bring America together"
    Everyone will bring money back to the USA for a new gold rush !! Happy Days with that guy "but you never know" but ! I got a lot of hope in him do to his failures "kinda like that"...He's not a crook, He just uses the tools in front of him by Law to succeed.
    I love his track record "no Iraq war" was my position. BUT once in it...win it !!

    And I'm saying that you know absolutely nothing about me. You are clueless.

    Again, you know nothing about me and what I've done.
    Not only have I taught, but I will also guarantee you that I made twice as much money doing it as you did, if you were in the public school system. Don't make assumptions that you have no facts on.

    As stated above, you are clueless about my background and sound like just another Liberal know-it-all, that actually knows nothing.

    See, without your {false} know it all horseshit attitude and attempting to put yourself above the rest of us, we could have actually had a conversation. But I'm no longer interested in conversing with you, but I'm more than willing to trade jabs and insults if you choose.

    Your lack of facts and arrogant attitude not only defines you as a perfect leftist, but it also sounds like you're part of the problem in the educational system.

    I wasn't insulted, because your false information was only a weak attempt at an insult.
    As I said, you don't know :shit:, but you think that you're above the rest of us, or you wouldn't have come with this type of attitude.

    :horseshit:. If you are poor you get all kinds of grants and don't have to pay. If you are a person with a high net worth it barely puts a dent in your nest egg. Everybody in between feels it.

    So whats the solution?
    I would say let the Federal Government or State Governments open up FREE online Universities, it wouldn't really cost them too much to do.
    Sure it's not like actually being there but better than not having a choice.
    That would be a good start not the final solution to it but a good beginning

    I see that grant money at work all the time on Judge Judy. Seems a lot of female grant recipients think buying a fancy set of rims or such for their boyfriend with their grant money is a good idea, when he dumps them they want the money back.

    That happens all the time, but not quite as often as when she asks "what's the nature of your disability?", that's on a daily basis.
