They're useless and parents and tax payers should work to end their bureaucratic asses, just as MANY government and union organizations should be defunded and sent the way of the horse and buggy. These are middlemen and parasitic con artists that contribute zilch.

Since you are a Trump supporter then you are kind of contradicting Trumpism in a way. So I would say you are not really a Trumpster but a Norquist.
Norquists do not understand that you can't keep slashing taxes forever. Then you will have no government left and the lower and impoverished middle class will eat the rich.

We spend a shit-ton for education today and get a substandard product. That's a fact.
The correlation between school spending and performance is tenuous. In fact, some of the states where the most is spent have the lowest standardized scores.
What JohnRawls doesn't understand is that the more the left brackets spending (tax dollars) for their pet projects (education, climate, healthcare, wokeism projects, Universal basic income, or whatever), the less disposable income there is and that causes recessionary pressures on the overall economy. The whole reason democrats push for subsidies and higher taxes is because there's NO NATURAL DEMAND for what they want. Therefore, they have to confiscate more and more taxes and fees from the earner's pay check to fund their pet projects.
When the producers of (education, climate, healthcare, wokeism projects, UbI, or whatever) see that boon in "free gubmint sugar", they boost the cost of their products and services to sop up all the "free money" (tax payer earned dollars) the government hands out with no audits and no controls. They raise prices BECAUSE THEY CAN. What happens is bureaucracies, administrative government overhead and paper pushing grows, and the tax payer has less money to put food on the table and heat the house. Private industry shrinks and employment prospects shrink also. Money can't be spent in two places at once. Thus, poor economic outcomes happen because government=slack (AKA inefficiency).
Lesson: a government bureaucrat doesn't know what's best for you. YOU know what's best for you.
