If parents think school is safe enough for their children to attend classes, teachers should have to decide if they still want their jobs or not. Those who don’t show up to teach when classes start should be considered to have quit because they think their chosen profession is now too dangerous. No pay for no-show work.
What are taxpayers getting for all their money in public education now?
Teachers at that school are 60 percent male, which is more effective in teaching boys. But there are no girls at the all-male school, as they distract from the attention span of boys.
That is more than enough to pay for a private school education, particularly at Catholic schools, according to the National Catholic Education Association.
PolicingDitto that for local policing, too. Private for-profit security companies would never tolerate the abusive policing we have seen even from the most liberal city governments. They would know they would be sued out of business if they did not operate as Black Lives Matter would approve.
Assaults and other violent crimes all show the Ferguson Effect, as cities agreed to operate under a federally mandated police consent decree to show tolerance for criminal behavior, the most recent devastating blow to safety in our cities. The current wave of unrest is further destroying the economic viability of our cities under failed socialist leadership, with “reallocation” of police funding, a euphemism for defunding the police.
This economic and security collapse will cause an additional surge in crime and poverty, pushing our cities into a death spiral once and for all. The anarchist Leninist agenda will then be complete.
Here, too, taxpayers should take the initiative as their local governments evaporate. As free local government schools and security disappear because left-wing governments can no longer operate to provide them, and criminals are freed from jail as soon as arrested because of so-called “bail reform laws,” taxpayers should take the initiative to sign up for security from professional for-profit security firms, who can operate their own private sector jails and prisons and even courts. All for negotiated fees charged in competitive private markets.
Responsible, professional police unions, unlike teachers unions, should be welcomed as the perfect partners for private small businesses, property owners, and taxpayers. Redirect property taxes, and federal funds through school choice as Trump has proposed, to the private schools, police, courts, and jails that are still operating to provide the services.
