Government Schools Are Bad for Your Kids
What You Need to Know
Mr. James Ostrowski
Government Schools Are Bad for Your Kids is a devastating critique of K-12 government schools and an urgent plea for parents to withdraw their kids for their own good and the good of the nation.
For over fifty years, the schools have been the subject of harsh criticism from the left and the right. Yet, all reform efforts have failed since the special interests have blocked various school choice proposals.
After too many decades of failed promises, it is time to declare America's experiment in government schools a failure.
It is time to pull the plug.
