Education should NOT be parents' responsibility. There are so many
sadistic parents who put their children into boot camps and the like.

But who, then, decides how far individual rights go? This can be done
only in a democratic process.

And it is exactly because of individual rights that I think education
should be financed by community (i.e. by tax money). I want that every
young person has an individual right to attend a democratic school
regardless of their economic background.
