Public Schools Still Violent Hellholes

Sure, we all like to get our cheap kicks by condemning the rich for sending their kids to private schools. But can you blame them, when public schools are so dangerous and drug-infested? (Yes. But check out these stats).

  • 46% of public middle and high school kids say there are gangs at their school. At private and/ or religious schools: 2%.
  • 47% of public school kids say "drugs are used, stored or sold at school." At private/ religious schools: 6%.
  • And more than a quarter of public school kids say drugs and gangs are present at their school.
So next time you start resenting those private school kids, just remember: they still have to come over to your school to buy weed.
