“Public” School?

If an institution that robs people of their right to self-determination can call itself “public”; if being “public” means it can turn families into agents of the state, making parents spy on and harass their sons and daughters because a schoolteacher tells them to; if the state can steal your home because you can’t pay its “public” school taxes, and the state courts can break up your family if you refuse to allow the state to tell your children what to think—then the word public is a label for garbage and for people who allow themselves to be treated like slaves.
