When I was in school, I went to public school bookended by stints at private school. I’ve seen a bit of everything, in that regard, including secular and religious instruction, to some degree.
So when I tell people I’m a school choice supporter, they need to understand I’ve seen both sides of it.
But there’s another reason to support school choice, and that’s the fact that progressive policies have made so many public schools into Thunderdome.
A 200-pound Ontario middle schooler was getting ready to pummel his classmate when a group of teachers escorted him to an office where they hoped to calm him down — instead, he proceeded to ram into the two adults, a man and a woman, for the better part of an hour, leaving them shaken and bruised. He never faced any consequences.
