Do you hate liberty so much that you'd deny parents the ability to take their kid to a private school?
    I had actually said the opposite. Schooling is a private good. Why would I want the government to produce it.

    What do you make of the assertion that it ought to be considered as infrastructure?

    So where do students go that don't qualify for your magnet schools ?

    Do you support parents taking their taxes to the private schools?
    do you support giving these parents even more money beyond their taxes?
    do you support the lowering of already low wages in the countryside for teachers with privatization?
