Well, we've been waiting for the government to make the schools less shitty for decades, IMO, it's time to try something different. If the government can find a way to make schools less shitty, great, but why should a poor child have to wait around for this to happen while the parents of a rich child have the options of pulling them out and sending them to a better school?

"...and once we control at least the economy of our own community, we will actually be in a position to provide employment for the people of the community. And this will eliminate the necessity of us acting ignorantly and disgracefully boycotting and picketing some cracka somewhere else trying to beg him for a job. Anytime you have to rely upon your enemy for a job, you're in bad shape.” - Malcolm X
