Is the real reason children returned to public schools rather than their parent’s real choice of a private religious school, same as their mayor, most politicians, and 40 percent of public-school teacher send their children?

The Chicago Tribune headline article titled: CPS enrollment continues to plummet: ‘I would have never imagined seeing this steep of a decline, reported the following comment stated:

“Mayor Lori Lightfoot said it’s a “minor miracle” that CPS is “only” down 10,000 students due to the pandemic and other disruptions. She said it’s a testament to the hard work of CPS staff to keep students engaged.”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate and ancient proverb, an idiom, and the real reason.

King Solomon

For my mouth will speak the truth, and wickedness is detestable to my lips. All the words of my mouth are righteous; none are crooked or perverse. They are all plain to the discerning, and upright to those who find knowledge.…(Proverbs 8:7-9)

 Idiom -Money talks.

Money gives one power and influence to help get things done or get one’s own way. 

What’s My Point?

The real reason most parents send their children to public schools is the same reason why [previous generations had to pay exorbitant prices to private owned business owners who controlled the vital needs for basic commodities in the past such as food, coal, oil, transportation monopolies.

My point is that ever since government took over the schools over 100 years ago, the same monopoly effect of raising taxes Ito fund schools is s now the highest cost item in every municipality in the USA.

Or in other words, most poverty and now middle-class families cannot afford to pay two tuitiions, one in the form of their taxes to pay for public schools, even if they don’t have children, for the rest of their lives, and one if they have children and cannot afford to pay private school tuitions same as the mayor, most politicians, and 40 percent of public-school teachers.

In My Opinion,

While I do not doubt that public school teachers worked hard during the Covid pandemic, so did the private school teachers’ who kept their school doors open while for some reason public schools did not.

Add the following comment from parents who changed from public schools to private schools and experienced the difference because they could afford to do so, ending comment in the article:”

“Before the year started, my son said he was only switching for a year and then he was going back to Burley. We just asked him … what he thought and he said, ‘No, I want to stay at St. Andrew.’

In other words, now that the Supreme Court ruled that the laws forbidding public taxpayer funds being used for private schools was unconstitutional, there no longer is any reason for voters to not have school choice or school vouchers.

All parents and voters have to do is vote to elect legislators to allow school choice or vouchers to end the public-school monopolies.

You Decide

Is it fair or just for parents to pay two tuitions to make it unaffordable for most poverty or middle-class family to be unable to send their children to private religious schools to be taught in depth their religious values same as wealthy, politicians, and 40 percent of public-school teachers in USA?

Or is it the truth that many legislators seem to listen better to those who contribute to their campaign funding because of the idiom “Money Talks for some “wicked or perverse” reason?

Should parents vote for legislators who will not support school choice of vouchers to end public school monopolies that allow politicians to mandate “what is best to teach children instead of parents “now occurring in Virginia and the USA?
