    Thank you for the information, it makes sense! I do have a question though. How exactly do you believe that the "free market" would take better care of the education system??

    2 simple questions. 1 where in the world and human history have you seen this idea that neocons have been talking about for 20 years actually work, and of the 85% of the world that cannot afford private education, exactly who will this benefit?

    If one looks at the educational levels of nations that have public education to nations where there is practically only private education the statisitics are obvious!
    Economics translated to education?
    look at China's free and public education compared to 47 Black nations of Africa's sporadic public but mostly private education and then ask yourself who is the lender and who is the debtor?

    that could be done but it would be more then pedantic cause there are about twelve charts in the archives but maybe some time later I wil do some archeology, that is why I asked where anywhere in the world have you seen what you are talking about actually work? The neocon ref was not a beef or a put down but a point of personal reference cause no where in world history have I heard this idea you put forth other then from Neocons.

    Well I respect you and I feel you are a good brother but we are geting into cyclic conversation cause I asked that question before in is this an elitist thing since only a handful of any American population regardless of color or ethnicity have the time the money or knowledge to do any of the 2!

    But my question as posed to another here is if these folks (as well as 90% of the top Black Business women and men in the past 100 years to today,

    that did not effect them! Do you feel we need to do our own sanitation? our own fire department? water filtration too?

    I asked you what was so wrong if it messed up these great people and you tell me about some paper some dude wrote as though he is God!

    Black folks in the 60s in NYC really did create community controlled school boards and voted in trusted and researched educators and community activists to lead those boards. That died out after the crack epidemic, but it can and would be restored!
