8. The part you've left out is that the PTB are deliberately forcing that situation. Yes, someone

 

will make the school you describe. And folks who want their kids to go there will *pay* for the privilege, and also pay taxes to fund crappy cut rate public prison schools for the poor. The rest of education will eventually be privatized, and tiered by income.

*That* is the blueprint. And the corporations providing that private education will be global. They are already waiting in the wings.

And people who pay attention to education policy know that many of the dysfunctional aspects of public schooling are that way because of government policy, and in my opinion, on purpose.

And as for the poster with delusions that "choice" will remain once the transition is fully underway, and that people will continue to be allowed to make their own little school, and tag team, and bring the neighborhood together to teach each others children -- dream on. You will attend an accredited school a/o use an accredited curriculum if you want your kid to get a foothold on the ladder, and you will pay a corporation for the privilege.
