    Just a guess, but perhaps they don't trust themselves with making decisions for themselves?

That private school was 3 months slower in teaching the same principles as the public school was.

    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.
    I guess that is why the affluent are sending their kids to public schools in droves (lmao), the more urban the better! Baltimore spends more per student than any other school district in the country. How is that working out?

    I wonder how many Democrats in Washington are sending their kids to the public schools they support so much. None?

    Who said anything about unlimited immigration? That's you attempting to change the subject from one of labor costs to a political strawman. But that's to be expected...when you can't win on the issue at hand change the subject in an attempt to confuse and hope no one notices.

    Far more people, regardless of affluence are using the public school system than not.

    The fact of the matter is unless you have something showing how private schools are actually leading the nation in any educational standards, all you have is hearsay and nothing concrete. Since we've already shown that your claim is nothing more than personal opinion, you'll have to do better than just expressing your experience on the subject and stating it as fact.

    Currently we are 1:1 for public vs private schooling in terms of personal experiences.

    Liberals should be apologizing for what they have done to schools in this country.
    Public schools as a whole have not failed in this country. Certain public schools in certain parts of the country have failed for multiple reasons. This has been shown before in discussions on US public education.

    this tells me you have never taken econ 101 or any other finance or business course.
    actually no they are fully adequate. I can't justify 15 an hour for a position that only produces 10 if that. if you want 15 an hour the position has to produce 18-20.

    No, you aren't paid what you are able to produce. Your labor has excess value. That's literally the basis of all employment. If you produce more, there's absolutely no guarantee that you "move up."
    I have yet to work for a company that wouldn't move people up for producing more than expected. my current company it is one of the only ways to move up.

    Maybe the real problem with the libertarian crowd is that they still think the world is fair.
    no we fully realize that the world is unfair and once people live with the fact and understand the life isn't fair they will be much better off for it.

    if you go to a major university then yes it can cost you an arm and a leg more so if you are out of state.

    however there are some really good local colleges that don't cost as much.
    the reward for going to college is the ability to get a better job with better pay and more money than you can make without it.

    sorry your appeal to emotion of "it's a paywall" is simply a fallacy.
    then again that is why we have grants, scholarships and loans to help pay for it.

    look at the chart again, and the average debt incurred. that's a paywall.

    most of them cost a lot of money. i'm arguing in favor of debt free access to post secondary education.

    there's a reward for the entire country as well. we all benefit from a deep intellectual pool, and putting a paywall in front of it is stupid policy.

    it's not a fallacy. look at the chart.
