If by success you mean a program that give children a well-rounded education, covering all topics and prepares them to be able to find their place in the society and economy of the present and future, all without going over budget, then YES I know MANY programs that are 100% effective. They're called "home schools" and they take NO Government funding!! While my daughter and I did very well, I must say that we could not claim 100% success. Kudos to you, I guess. I believe in the choice to homeschool and I also believe in the choice not to do so. Do you believe in that choice?


Many private schools are likewise very effective, and again--they take NO government funding, and are accountable to the parents of the students they are teaching for what is taught when. Failure to produce results leads to parents pulling their students from that institution. Considering parents have the funds to afford this. If the only two choices were private schools or home schools in your scenario, then I'm afraid many families would lose out. Are we back to child labor, then?

Do I know of a Governemt program that is 100% effective? No. And neither do you, because none exists--you admitted that in your own post! The private sector will ALWAYS perform better and more efficiently than ANY government program. What I "admitted" in my own post is that I know of no program at all that is 100% successful. None. Not even home school, which I adore, or private school. I have serious doubts of your 100% success rates of those two choices, to be honest. I would ask for sources and data but I seriously think I would just get flogged since that data doesn't exist. I would be the "bad guy" once again just for asking. So, I'll just congratulate you on your perfect record at homeschooling and go on with it.
