Who then pays for the schooling of a poor kid in downtown DC or rural West
Virginia? The "government" is nothing more (nor less) than the collective
will of the individual people of a country. You will notice that in my plan,
the "government" has no role in setting policy or procedures at any
school...just in being the vehicle for the society at large to express its
belief in the necessity of the universality of being educated by funding the
schools. The individual parents (and kids) would be able to vote with their
feet for the best ones.
