working for something and accomplishing something shows personal initiative.
people feel more self worth for something they had to work for than for something just given to them and paid for by someone else.
heck you won't even pay for it so I don't see how you should expect other people to pay it.
So no, there is little difference in public/private schools depending upon where you are, and calling people stupid for going to a public school is a silly idea.

"How do you know the good memories from the bad, if you only have good ones."
It's not nanny state to deny credit where there's no evidence of creditworthiness. I can't get a loan for a car or house if the lender has no evidence of my ability to repay. That's not nanny state, it's logical and consistent with fair trading between creditors and debtors.I'm not saying that you are wrong, but I am suggesting your are on the verge of getting into the nanny-state policy.
That ensures devaluation of the degrees. How do we keep our higher ed competitive with the rest of the world?require completion of the degree as a condition.
That doesn't keep the cost down, it just reassigns it, and in some cases subsidy can make cost problems worse.as for keeping the cost down, subsidize the school.
Worse idiocy fails to persuade me to accept not-worse idiocy.we waste money on many programs that are more idiotic than that.
I would much sooner recommend taking every dollar you'd advise throwing at higher education and instead devote it to social, therapeutic and educational programming that will take young children out of the traumatic and unpredictable care of their irresponsible parents and into positive learning environments.

that I have. rather than someone just handing it to me.
if people don't have the motivation to go to college while working for it they don't have the motivation if you and other like you pay for it.
your opinion is your opinion.
and your opinion on a great many things is :
Other people should pay my way through life simply because they have money and they can. everything should be free and no one should have to pay
for anything unless it is someone else.
when challenged to start funding it yourself you refuse shows how baseless the ideology actually is.
