MessageA very short, but great, moment in this nation's history ended by one bill. Well done REP. Disappointing.

MessageThe RHP applaud this legislation. The tyrannical policies imposed on Rutania's school system will finally be repealed, and the autonomy of schools, parents and local governments restored.

MessageI wonder if the Orange Party jumped up and down clapping their hands, "absolutely fantastic" :)

We obviously oppose this step backwards.

MessageThis is not a step backwards.

This will allow education to be controlled by local governments again. Government closer to home is more representative. We know you are tired of hearing this, but the truth hurts, does it not?

If your former plan was really the best plan for Rutanians, then why did they turn against you in the most recent elections?

And perhaps we did jump up and down clapping our hands....

ToDebating the Return to the Independent Education
MessageWell we dont' agree with your opinion that education is best served by local governments. We should have a sensible, well thought out national curriculum, I cannot see why you would need to deviate from it locally.

FromRutanian Restoration Party
ToDebating the Return to the Independent Education
MessageDifferent localities may have different educational needs and therefore a different emphasis. One standardized national curriculum developed by bureaucrats in Port Nelson, for instance may not be advantageous to an inner-city student in Bozarburg.

We will continue to say local needs are better addressed locally.

Now, what we could support, and may propose ourselves, is a massive grant program where the federal government gives block grants to each commonwealth depending upon their needs for each year. But we would insist that curricula and administration of the grants come from local authorities.

MessageIsn't that what further/higher education is for? To specialize for certain jobs and needs?

A national curriculum would give children the best opportunity to go onto university and specialize in a certain field of study.

Date21:28:37, October 30, 2009 CET
FromRutanian Restoration Party
ToDebating the Return to the Independent Education
MessageYes that is what it is for, and specialization would be implemented better for the people of Ardinia by their local representatives than by Ministry of Education bureaucrats in Port Nelson.

The reason for this is because the people of each individual commonwealth see their local needs far better than we do here from Port Nelson.

MessageCan you give any examples in which the national curriculum would need to change in a local area?

MessageThis is an example of Division, not Unity, and therefore we must stand against it.

MessageThe PPR can see a very rapid shift to the right over the next few years. This is utterly disappointing.

MessageIt may be disappointing to you, but this is what the people of Rutania want and have wanted for a long time. Rutanians want restricted government, not restrictive government.
