Should public schools be free? | DEBATEitOUT.com
Some good quotes from the comments on this article.....
"..I wonder if the best route isn't to take government out of grade school all together.....people would have more money to pay for their kids education without tax dollars being taken from them for it....parents would all be free to choose which schools they were willing to pay to send their kids to..."
One good point made by another person that left a comment though........
"I must have missed something. What are property taxes again? Free?"
Very good point. Public schools aren't free.
"competitive schooling, school choices exercised by parents instead of by location........would give us some advantage that we're often completely ignoring at present..."
Again, good ideas.
"Dismantle the Department of Education. Take the federal government completely out of the education business.
School vouchers are the way to go."
