John, the Looking Forward report is a joint project of the Colorado Fiscal Policy Institute, the Bell Policy Center, and the Colorado Children's Campaign - three leftist organizations noted for their forced collectivism approach to problem solving. Similarly, the Aiming for the Middle report comes from the CFPI, which is a subsidiary of the Colorado Center on Law and Policy, another liberal organization with a pro-government orientation.

Correct me if I am wrong, but nowhere in either report is there any suggestion that government could or should become more efficient at delivering services, though government waste is simply ridiculous in scope. Nor is any thought presented as to the many problems associated with the massive transfer of wealth from the private sector that these groups advocate. The lefties would have us believe that government is actually capable of solving problems better than the private sector, when decades of experience proves government to inefficient at best and incompetent at worst.

John, I am also a fan of George Will. Here are a couple of his columns apropos of the current public education discussion.




Do we need to at times adjust our views?

We do indeed need to adjust our views sometimes, Annette. I remember being a teenager and telling myself that I would NEVER a) vote against a school tax, or b) send my kids anywhere but public school. I maintained both positions well into my early 30's. Needless to say, I did adjust my view on both issues over the years.
