Coming from someone who is currently in the public school school system, there needs to be changes and big ones. People who have had plenty of experience have been in charge in the past and totally ruined the system by controlling public schools federally by essentially bribing the states. Maybe an outsider will be a refreshing change of pace, it can't get worse. The public education system right now is geared towards making belle average kids smarter, but does not focus at all on the above average kids which will be the future leaders of America. However, private schools do just that. They allow above average students to get smarter because they worry less about the below average. Not to mention students get to learn values and morals that will help them throughout life in private schools.
