No one has disputed that some private schools do better than public schools. But when you get to pick and choose who you let in, you SHOULD do better than a system which has to take every student, even the ones with little motivation to be there.
You're absolutely right, and that's why we need them. It's only through public education that a child from a poor family can make something of themselves and move up to the middle class (or beyond). Without public education, we become a two class society, with the lower class never being able to move up. That's why public education is important, it gives EVERYONE a chance.Public schools are for the peasant class.
But I find your umbrige with someone taking advantage of wealth rather funny given the general political position you hold. And ending public schools seems like the most ineffective and counter productive means to address the issues involved here
Far Right Wingers rambling on about Socialism that and Socialism this...
Gets ****ing old.
Socialism as a word with a definition has been pretty much destroyed by the modern political noise machine.
For the far right wing all it amounts to now is "Things I Don't Like".
Public school are awesome.
