I attended both public and private schools, and I had the opposite experience. I felt I learned more in private school. The students there by and large wanted to learn, and were more respectful. The teachers were happier. Could be the public school I went to was an absolute zoo where most kids didn't want to be there, and made life so difficult for the teachers they didn't even want to bother anymore. Kids smoking pot in class, dropping LSD in the drivers ed instructor's coffee, librarian having sex with students, there were shootings, stabbings, fights, gang problems, general distain for all authority etc. I saw all of that in public school and none of it in private school. YMMV
Most of my friends who went to private school lean conservative. I'm pretty satisfied with what Trump is doing myself. I voted for him but he wasn't really my first choice. I think Hillary deserves to go to prison. People died because of her, she compromised national security, and she avoided consequence by abusing the power of her position. If a CEO did what she did she'd be in prison. I see no rational reason to impeach Trump. What impeachable offense has he committed?
The way I see education is there has to be a desire on the part of the individual. If that's not there it's like trying to feed an animal that refuses eat. I'd be in favor of getting rid of the education system all together and leave it up to the individual. You want to learn? Cool. Buy your own books, read them, and do your own homework until you understand. If you're motivated you'll go far. If you're not you're going to wind up in the same place you would have if someone forced you to go to school. The difference is we're not wasting a bunch of tax money on morons who aren't going to be any better for it.
