    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.

    Yea, the milk should have to pay for the education for the cream to make their 6-7 figure salaries. Thats fair.

    Heres a radical idea...how about everyone pays their own way through? If YOUR education....YOU should pay for it.

    It is just one example. The year my son graduated HS, 20% of his class scored 800 on the math portion of the SAT.

    I don't understand why having everyone receive a better education is bad for the country. Sure, if everyone has it it's no longer special, but what does having a subset of our population feeling special achieve? A better educated populace is better. Full stop.
    do you understand what happens when scarcity is removed from a labor market?

    not really.. .some of us simply understand the value of skill sets and understand how scarcity affects labor markets.

    set minimum wage at 100 bucks an hour and give them free PHD's for all I care ...... just be prepared to reap what is sown. (i'll be dead and gone, so I won't have to deal with the aftermath.)

    6-7 figure salaries wouldn't exist without some form of scarcity.... which i think most of these so-called"liberals" see as a benefit.... it fits their belief in forced mediocrity to a T.

    ok. make education prohibitively expensive, and then conservatives can pay for welfare instead and bitch about it on internet message boards.

    or we could educate the kids so that they don't need welfare, and conservatives could still bitch about that.

    i prefer the latter.

    there's a whole world in between basically barring education for everyone and providing it for everyone free of cost.
