Mr. Sloan;

Why don’t you just come to the point and state “I’m tired of supporting all those lazy MF’s who want me to pay for their childs education.”? I do.

Have a Great Day!! :) There won’t be many left with the Demlicans and Republicrats in charge.

This letter writer states: “The public school establishment in South Carolina operates institutions that produce a terribly low quality product.”

My children go to public school in SC and they perform at the top level on National Standardized Tests…For you to put down my child based on your ignorance indicts you. My children work very hard, and it is reflected in the results they achieve academically.

Also: There are public schools in South Carolina that fare well in quality when compared to any school in the nation. But in some areas there is little emphasis placed on scholarship and that is mirrored in the quality of the student. Most of these poor performing districts have a lack of parenting and the people display poor social behavior, that is not addressed by the leaders in those regions.

Other than that, your opinion seems to be rooted in weak-thinking cliche and more false premises. You may need to do a little homework to Re-Educate yourself, before you preach to others. You are not a very learned person, based on your letter.

1. The fact that you have children is just scary.

2. If your children are smart, it clearly is from their mother’s DNA.

3. You really should take a look at what Ned Sloan does in this state in his attempts to make government follow the rules before saying “You are not a very learned person… .”

Big T, let them make fun of you. For once you get it. Howie, Fits and the rest of the School Choice folks have been attacking innocent public school children for years, in their effort to force the state to pay for private schools. It is wrong and unfair to those children who have worked hard to show they can compete with anyone. There are many children attending good public schools who will go to excellent colleges and be successful. But to hear this crowd every child who attends public school is a dullard or neglected by their parents. I think its generally out of insecurity. They need to convince themselves that their huge investment in private school was worth it. They aren’t really sure, so they want the state to pay for it. That way mom can still drive the kids to after school LaCrosse in her BMW while Dad makes his game at the club and the rest of us foot the bill.

Intentionally bashing innocent children to get your hands on state money is disgusting.

“Intentionally bashing innocent children” because people are insecure about whether private education is worth it and want to go to the club and drive BMWs? You lose all credibility when you say things like that. To hear you tell it, no parents in the public school system are advocating for choice. That’s simply not true. What about this spike in charter schools? This is public school choice:
http://www.thestate.com/2013/04/06/2711422/interest-in-charter-schools-in.html

These people are talking about a public school system that has some serious problems – that has to do with the adults who run it, not the children who are in it and suffering from bad policy. Some want public school choice and some want private school choice options. It’s not a clear cut issue, no matter how much you wish it was.

But by all means, stick to the same set of talking points, regardless of the argument made by the other side. Continue to copy and paste.

Hey, Mr. Sloan……..

Vouchers, Vouchers, Vouchers = Voucher Scam.

Regardless of what you call it. It’s a scam.

You are just another Voucher Clown. And you wrote the “public school establishment” uses the term “voucher” because of “Joe Six Pack?” Really?!?

Either Mr. Sloan is totally ignorant or he is just another brainwashed Voucher Clown.

Maybe, both.

Many Voucher Clowns are totally ignorant of the real issues facing public education.

But, most of them know that Howie’s voucher scam (regardless of what Howie’s voucher pimps call it) is nothing but a scam.

Howie’s Voucher Clowns started the term “voucher” – not the “public school establishment.”

They dropped the term after being defeated a brazillion times in the SC Legislature by honest and responsible elected officials because everyone realized what it really means. Vouchers are a scam!

The voucher scam robs public tax dollars from those who need help the most and does nothing but leave them further behind.

Sloan writes that “blacks” would flock to private schools under the Voucher Scam.

With that comment Mr. Sloan exposes himself with a lie.

Pick Two: “Ignorant” “Racist” “Voucher Clown”

Or, roll them into one. Think about it Mr. Sloan.

You may figure it out.

Liberals have made too many schools unfit for poor children in democrat-voting districts.

The GOP (or Conservative voters) respond by building a different (and better) product. The Conservatives and open-minded want a fraction of the same public funding for those superior schools.

Instead of begging failed liberals for OUR money to subsidize OUR schools, the GOP in S.C. needs to TAKE our schools Back.

Have some Guts. Stand up to the Failure, and tell the liberals Failure has consequences. We have the POWER in this state. Showing success will have a STRONG influence.

Allowing the left to control education allows the media (like FITS) to bash Republicans. Not doing the right thing leaves the Right vulnerable to failed Liberal dogma.

You’re brain dead, w/o the ability to offer anything, other than what is fed to you from your leftwing puppet masters…
Liberals have had education for 50 years, and it has gotten worse except where parents have influenced achievement. The state has Failed…
Republicans have allowed it to happen, so that FITS can bash Republicans, not for what they have done, but for NOT protecting the voters from the failure of liberals…
The public school system has been made unfit for too many. And now Obama is doing the same to our healthcare system…and it will be unfit.
The GOP would be in power forever, if it TOOK BACK education and healthcare, and the government in general. Decent people are demoralized because Republicans have let the left get away w/ so much…and damage our country…
If the GOP would act Conservative (Gun Control, Sequester, Immigration) FITS would not be able to attack them…and the voters would be enthusiastic to reward them w/ re-election…and more offices, nationally.

The idea that somehow if vouchers/tax credits/school choice is passed that suddenly, private schools will open their doors to large numbers of economically disadvanted students is at best, unrealistic. Folks send their kids to private schools in many cases to avoid these kids, who often have a whole set of issues aside from academics to address. I hear a great deal about how charter schools are going to solve everything. In reality, the academic results of charter school have been for the most part disappointing. (The SC Department of Education studiously avoids the topic of charter school results.) The reason is that charter schools are working with the same challenging kids that regular public schools are. At least, charter schools have to publish their results and can’t exclude kids for any reason they want. Under the voucher/tax credit/school choice legislation, no such accountability, transparency or access will be required, even though private schools would be benefitting from a government handout disguised as “free market reform.”
