When public ed. was all we had, and it was properly funded (except in poor black and brown areas), we had the best education system ON THE PLANET. Going to 'for-profit' while requiring no basic STANDARDS, isn't the answer, as the statistic have proven over and over. Right now, Wisconsin EDUCATION is IN THE SEWERS because of DEFUNDING and REROUTING that money to PROFITEERS. Same with PRISONS! What's more, even a right-wig idiot in congress KNOWS THIS!
