As I see it, there are three major problems with public education:

- A bureaucracy so big and unweidly it makes it close to impossible for
educators to actually educate
- The mistakes we make today won't be visible for about 15 to 20 years
- People sending their kids there is a tacit acceptance of the state
indoctrinating their children
- Public schools become a ground for experimenting with social policy
(look at the "progressive" military personnel policies during the
Clinton administration)

OK.  That was actually four, but you get the point.
