Will this News Article help promote understanding of an ancient wisdom verse along with 31 other good reasons?

The Chicago Tribune Op-ed titled: Chicago Public Schools are broken. Its time to give parents school choice, reported the truth.

“The only solution for a system so broken lies not with Lightfoot, Sharkey or anybody else in Chicago. It lies with their great enabler, state government, which has been relentlessly derelict in its central duty to educate our children.”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate and ancient wisdom verse, an idiom, and my accolades to the Chicago Tribune for making public what millions of parents want. Escpeccially for low and now middle-income parents would prefer to do same as what most affluent members in society can afford, as well as most politicians, and 40 precent of public-school teachers already have been doing for the last century.

King Solomon

Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old, he will not depart from it. (Proverb 22:6)

Idiom – a sorry state (of affairs)

A particularly unfortunate, unpleasant, or upsetting situation or set of circumstances.

What’s My Point?

Anyone who takes the time to study the history of the reasons why and how government took control of the education in the USA will find out that the original premise was to prevent mainly Catholic schools’ teachings, believed to be controlled by the Pope leadership in a foreign country to influence power and control in the USA Democrat Republic.

My point is this fear over time has resulted in instead infuluencing political power and control over time has make it unaffordable for parents to choose to teach their choice of religious and moral values to be passed on to their children.

The results of lack of religious and moral teachings are now evident in the news being reported every day of children who have never had the same opportunity as more affluent families because of the truth that anything the government takes control of will result in costing more than private business.

In My Opinion

In a Democrat Republic, government’s duty is to abide by the will of the people not to make it unaffordable for parents to choose the religious and moral values they want taught to their children to guide them on a straight path in their future.

The Chicago Tribune news article brings up only one aspect of how the teacher union has obtained power over parents or government. However, there are many more reasons why school choice or school vouchers have been suppressed by State laws ever since the end of the Civil War and finally ruled to have been unconstitutional in a 2020 Supreme Court Ruling.

In my opinion, the only good thing about the Covid pandemic is it has highlighted this issue of school vouchers. One example being that the private public schools have remained open during the entire pandemic, while the public schools have not managed because of one of the main reasons why affluent, politicians, and 40 percent of public-school teachers choose to send their children to private religious schools.
