"We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we’ve always had kind of a private notion of children. Your kid is yours and totally your responsibility. We haven’t had a very collective notion of these are our children. So part of it is we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families and recognize that kids belong to whole communities."

THE STATE CAN HAVE MY CHILDREN OVER MY DEAD BODY
OK, so I read something from MSNBC anchor Melissa Harris-Perry said,
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? I guess she's a professor at Tulane University. One more place my kids won't be attending. I would like to ask the so-called professor where she gets this notion of the collective and that kids belong to the state. Where does she get this "we" she speaks with? Who is this "we" she speaks as? And by what authority does she think "we" have to claim ownership of children, my children?
This is exactly why we need to create some Universities that aren't run by socialists. Are they totally clueless about the history that they love to play revisionist with? What good did it do to allow Hitler and the Nazi's to create their little Aryan nation? How about the USSR and their perfect little society? Do they not know that these societies have very little to no value for human life?
I teach children every day where parents have given up ownership and responsibility of their children. These children are lost, angry and destructive to themselves and others. They are not well. They need parents who take responsibility for them and are willing to be parents. Reality tells Melissa that she is very wrong. But I am sure her ideology will not allow her to see the truth.
My children belong to the state? Over my dead body.
