A ‘Conservative’ vision for America – How to make a Third World Country Edition – ‘Utah legislator wants to end compulsory education’

utah gun nuts

Think about that.

Wanting to end compulsory education…..

Add to it doing away with the minimum wage….

Doing away with safety net programs such as unemployment insurance……welfare……food stamps…..medicare…..medicaid……social security…..

And what you have is a Third World Country…..

SALT LAKE CITY ‘The idea of forcing children to attend school is outdated and should be scrapped in favor of a system that encourages learning by choice, state Sen. Aaron Osmond said in calling for an end to compulsory education in Utah’.

“Some parents act as if the responsibility to educate, and even care for their child, is primarily the responsibility of the public school system,” the South Jordan Republican first wrote on a state Senate blog on Friday’.

“As a result, our teachers and schools have been forced to become surrogate parents, expected to do everything from behavioral counseling, to providing adequate nutrition, to teaching sex education, as well as ensuring full college and career readiness.”

“Let’s let them choose it, let’s not force them to do it,” he told the Desert News (http://tinyurl.com/lqxb2tn ) on Monday. “I think that’s when you start seeing the shift.”

‘State School Board member Leslie Castle said she agrees that schools have become burdened with nonacademic responsibilities, like daily nutrition, basic health screenings and behavioral counseling. But the reality of Utah’s increasingly diverse population is that many children require those services, she said’.

“We live in a society where some children require help beyond the ability of their parents,” Castle said. “Those students don’t deserve to be punished, they don’t deserve to be disqualified.”

  2. The sick part of it is that the U.S. is the wealthiest nation. One could make a case of the U.S. already being a Third World Country.

    • In health care alone, being the only industrialized nation without a National public health care system, we are a Third World Country.
      If we only instituted the Robert Gate ‘Doctrine’ (stop invading land wars) we could reduce our military by 3/4, ‘borrow $2 Trillion dollars and build/rebuild our infrastructure – roads, bridges, waterways, airports, power grid.
      Spend the billions saved on wars and enact a single payer health care system, employing hundreds of thousands and 10’s of thousands more in support services….
      Rebuild America putting people back to work which takes them offof unemployment, welfare and even adds to our tax revenue.
      But if you make education ‘voluntary’, you end up with an uneducated public, unqualified for any of the above careers.
