Response to Suji to Seoul (Reply #73)

77. You keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means.

You keep saying that I'm nihilistic. I most certainly am not.

Violence - Where are the parents? Who the hell knows? I can't control them and don't want to. If they don't care if their little pricelings and princesses can't be be disciplined and grow up to be burger flippers, I can't stop 'em. I just want a better life than that for my kids. I also don't let my kids play in the street. Some parents do, but that does not seem like a good option.

College prep - I've got two options. Option A is a crappy school that will not prepare my kid for college. Option B is a great school that will. Both cost the same. If I try to change school A, it will take lots of effort and is not guaranteed to work. I only have one set of kids and they only get to go to elementary school once. I'm not going to risk the future.

I try to tell other parents about our charter school at every opportunity. I want as many people on board this revolution as possible. We WILL fix education. It is going to take a long time. There are lots of naysayers, such as yourself, but we'll show them.

And it's ensure, not insure. I'm guessing you didn't ever work in the English department.
