The fact is socialized schooling is an entitlement program bigger than Medicare and at least as big as Social Security. The arguments for socialized schooling are the same as the arguments for socialized medicine. They are equally as bogus too.
People who put their kids in the socialized school system are having their lifestyles subsidized by others. They are feeding at the public trough. Most dont like to have that pointed out, but facts are facts.
We need to do away with socialized schooling and replace it with a capitalist system.
Having a workforce capable of reading benefits the entire society. Not limiting access because of affordability is also valuable to a society as a whole.
The benefits outweigh the entitlement aspect. State constitutions mandate a state interest and responsibility for education precisely because their writers understood that societies were better off with an educated public than otherwise. This came from their own experiences.
Economies of scale also come into play to lower the costs per pupil into an affordable range. Education is very costly even so.
Most of the problems with education in this country comes from parents who either pay no attention to what is happening, don’t care or are just too busy making a living to get involved.
