I need to have it explained to me again why we have public education in this country.

It seems to me that, even in the face of “free” public schooling, the private sector can still manage to provide a higher quality of education at lower prices than the public sector.

If parents didn’t have to pay property taxes to pay for schooling, they would actually be paying LESS over-all to send their kids to a private school.

If you figure a cost savings of 5,000 dollars per student by eliminating public education and privatizing everything, that works out to an annual savings of $250,000,000,000 for the entire population given that there are roughly 50 million public school students.

That’s a lot of extra Christmas presents parents could be buying their kids.

Public education robs children of Christmas presents.
