Because the schools are compulsory. The kids are taught in groups segregated by age rather than by more relevant factors, because of the nature of schooling. The teachers get paid based on criteria that are unrelated to their or their students performance, because they are in teachers unions and work for the state. The parents have only extremely limited and highly cost prohibitive “choices” in their child’s education because the system is socialized rather than market-based. The administrators’ goals and plans are based around political objectives, because they are government bureaucrats. </p> <p>When the kids don’t want to be there, acting out is only natural. When the kids are grouped together, even on kid’s acting out hurts everybody’s learning. When the teachers are paid based on their seniority or the strength of that particular state’s teacher’s union, they have little incentive to fix this problem. Even those that want to fix it will find they have no administrative support, because the administrators are not businesspeople, they are bureaucrats. Therefore, their role is not to fix problems in order to maximize profits, but to enforce policies, without regard for the consequences. The parents might hate these policies, which are created for political ends, but they find that don’t have any power to change them or find alternatives, because the schooling system is so removed from market forces that consumer sovereignty has been replaced by a captive consumer. </p> <p>And so nobody is satisfied, everybody sends their complaints up the chain, nothing gets resolved, and the wheels on the bus go round and round.</p> </blockquote> <p>I wish this weren’t painfully accurate.</p>

Africa, Black History Month, and Community: Petition Asks Marvel to Invest 25% of "Black Panther" Profits into the Black Community @balleralert Petition Asks Marvel to Invest 25% of “Black Panther” Profits into the Black Community-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ As one of the most highly anticipated films of the year, “Black Panther” is expected to break some box office records and bring in millions. But now a petition has begun to have part of the profits be invested in the Black community. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ A petition on Change.org is asking Marvel to invest 25 percent of the profits into Black communities. Creator of the petition, Chaz Gormley wrote, "Through a clever, well-manufactured marketing campaign Marvel Studios and their parent company The Walt Disney Company have targeted the Black community with their advertisements for the upcoming Black Panther film, due to release on February 16, 2018. As marginalized groups have become more vocal, corporations and their savvy public relations departments have turned to catering to these groups - to turn a profit - and this film by Marvel Studios is no different." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Gormley also notes Marvel’s obvious appeals to the black community such as the film being released during Black History Month and Gil Scott-Heron's ‘The Revolution Will Not Be Televised’ playing in the film's initial trailer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The petition is asking those in the Black community to regain their power and demand that Marvel and its parent company, Disney, invest profits back into the community that is most connected with the film and have been faced with “police brutality and substandard living conditions." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ "You have the ability to not only be entertained but to leave the theater in February knowing that a portion of your money will be coming back into your community" Gormley adds. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ "To not only go see a film about a fictitious country in Africa with advanced technology but the opportunity to invest in programs which focus on the fields - Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics - that make such advancements possible, in real life.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ What do you think about this idea?
