Education is a human right.
Public schooling is beneficial to all and it doesn't fall on either side of the political spectrum. The reason we acknowledge we need education, in the form of public schools, is because we don't want to live a world full of idiots.

For example, Parents are allowed to be so disconnected from their responsibilities, the Los Angeles Unified School district rewards them by providing their children with meals three times a day, 365 days of the year.
And then there is the Teachers Union problem...
