This is a perfect analog for the eduction system. Liberals built a system that doesn't work and never will.

Public education works great. The problems are local funding of districts concentrating poverty, retirees moving to states and defunding public education (See: Arizona), and the perception that teaching is something white women do until they get pregnant, and not a real career that deserves a livable wage, benefits, and due process.

Or basically, Republicans proving government doesn't work by fucking things up so they don't work.

What's wrong with concentrating poverty? Low income schools in low income areas should get less funding. Conversely, high income areas should receive more. I wouldn't expect, say, Austin to pay out the nose for El Paso to pay nothing and both receive the same level of education. Having good school districts is a tool cities can use to improve local citizens.

This isn't the real problem.

Radical education reformers have pushed common core, which is part of a decades long attempt to make the curriculum push certain values and attitudes on children instead of offering them a genuine fact-based education. It was attempted in the 90s with outcomes based education and was tried in the 60s as well. The concepts come from Soviet schools, which themselves were designed around John Dewey's ideas.

This education reform was pushed by leftists and signed by Obama. Republicans are shit too though, and they push charter schools which are also co-opted to push the exact same "21st century" learning skills - read: emotional brainwashing. Catholic schools were co-opted not long ago as well with the same program. UNESCO, a UN organization with clear Marxist leanings, pushed the exact same educational standards across the globe (like in the UK, New Zealand and Europe) in the 90s.

There is a concerted effort by social engineers to get at your child's mind by controlling schooling. They currently control public schools, charter schools, catholic schools, and have a large amount of power in the colleges and universities.
