Wishful thinking.

Problem is that a quality education is all about giving students face time with their mentors. if you want your kids to be well educated, they are going to need some one on one tutoring.

Now the problem with public education is that it creates an artificially low limit for the cost of education. Private institutions have to raise their prices because of this. So while public education makes it possible for anyone to get at least a poor education, it also makes it much more expensive to get a quality one.

IMO if we are going to provide a free public education system , we're going to have to completely rethink the way we do things. Instead of spending millions, if not billions to physically house teachers and students, make the education materials open source, hand the responsibility to educate children back over to the parents. Sorry but i dont think i should have to pay for what basically amounts to free day care for irresponsible parents, its stupid
