      Some of the craziest conversations I have had are with libertarians.

      “We don’t need a department of education, we just need to be friends with our neighbors and the neighborhood pools it’s money to hire teachers who come from somewhere that we all agree are great because in this fantasy I get along with all of my neighbors perfectly and our values are aligned and then we rent a building or we build a building or we use someone’s home and we just teach the kids there!”

      Oh like public school? Like a public school with extra steps?

        I love how folks like to pick political ideologies like their favorite sports team. Like you can only use one tool to build a house.

          And the choice is often so remarkably ill-considered, if considered at all. Like buying a house based on the color of the mailbox.

        A ‘public’ school (or any institution) they imagine themselves dominating (and lets be real, abusing that power and potentially vulnerable individuals/children).
