Pardon me for butting in.
Why is it not the responsibility of society/community to educate the future
generation? Why is that idea anathema? Let's deal with the theory for a
moment, instead of the reality of the inequality of education across the
board. Why should it not fall to the community -- all of us -- to see that
future generations are educated?
I just sent off a big tax check, and it hurt, not because it'll pay for
education but because of the part that goes to military pork.
I have no problem financing the education of my neighbor's children -- even
if I decide to homeschool! Why should we shirk that responsibility?
