Turning Over Parental Responsibility to the Community

At the Town Hall meeting I was very disappointed that so many people are willing to turn over their parental responsibility to the community (taxpayers) and to the government. Matt Wittasek proposed a 5000 dollar amendment to the budget so the children can go on field trips and ice skating, etc. The line that every one fell for is it is only going to cost a few dollars. This is on top of the thousands of dollars we already pay to support a system with mediocre results at best. Well if it is only going to cost a few dollars why don't the parents at the beginning of each year pay a 50 dollar field trip fee or have the PTO raise the money? But as my readers know PTO's have been hijacked by the unions and the teachers so their needs are served over the children's needs.

Shame on those people who neglect their parental duties. Who knew there was so many people in Croydon who followed the Communist Manifesto.

Friedrich Engels, who in is 1847 draft of the Manifesto called "Principles of Communism" wrote as one of its tenets:
"Education of all children, from the moment they can leave their mother's care, in national establishments at national cost."
You can find many copies of this draft on the web.

Spelling and grammar errors as well as typos are left as an exercise for my readers.
