Are the guards at the public indoctrination center on strike? Do you have nowhere to send your kids while you’re at work? Fear not, there is a solution. You need only find other parents in the same predicament as you and ask them to join forces with you in hiring an instructor for your kids:
A group of parents in one city neighborhood banded together, hiring a former teacher to instruct about a dozen children. Their makeshift class commenced around 9 a.m. Monday in the basement of one of their homes.
This solution is ingenious for a couple of reasons. First the teacher you hire will be beholden to your group meaning you can ensure your children are taught material that you deem important. Second the class sizes can be kept very small so each child has more of the instructor’s attention. Ultimately this solution will likely lead to far better results than sending your child to a public indoctrination center.
This also proves that we don’t need the state because we have each other, which is what agorism is all about.

My solution is to fire the entire teaching staff and start from scratch hiring new teachers without a Union.
Mine is to end public education and recognize it as it really is – state indoctrination.
This is a perfect example as to how privatization would be a more efficient solution. If towns/cities/ or states were able to choose from competing education providers the citizens could then vote for the service provider they prefer. Contracts should be for X amount of years at which point the citizens get to vote to either keep the current provider or hire a new one.
In regards to the parents in Chicago that have hired a teacher to teach a group of kids at a house… how much longer do you think that will last before the striking teachers and their union pressure the city officials to bust up these underground unaccredited teaching rings?
“If towns/cities/ or states were able to choose from competing education providers the citizens could then vote for the service provider they prefer. Contracts should be for X amount of years at which point the citizens get to vote to either keep the current provider or hire a new one.”
Why not let the individuals choose from competing providers, and leave their contracts at will? Contrary to government propaganda, school does not have to be expensive. (They make it so by monopolizing it, and deciding who is allowed to “educate” – even private schools have to be approved.)
