You are correct, sir. That whole competition argument is absolutely bogus! Private schools choose the students they want to accept into their institution, public schools take every child within their district , whether they speak English as a first language, regardless of their ability to buy their own lunch, uniform, or pay for their field trips, whether they are C students or make regular appearances on the honor roll.

Do you think the vocher movement today has the intention to desegregate ??? If the U.S. models its educational system like Poland or Belgium, most likely American schools will be segregated, but the segregation probably will not matter, because poor performing schools will be shut down, and the students from the poor performing schools will be put into educatinally better schools.So the children from poor performing schools will not be left hanging.

Not public education, quality education through the siphoning off of funds by private schools. Of course it is the logical chain of events. The issue includes transferring money from public, non-profit entities to private, for-profit entities. Private entities compete with other private entities and their incentive to be the best is profit . To that end they are empowered to make student admission decisions that public schools cannot make.

Re: College "Education" Is BS

Have to agree with you on this one, EP. For the most part, colleges and universities are institutions of conformity. I say this with some insight, having worked at UCSF in administration for eleven years. In general, colleges and universities are a mirror of the values of society. And in this society, the reflection is capitalism and power. For US colleges and universities, government funding, corporate funding, private grants, and alumnae contributions, pretty much spell status quo.

I agree, this is very scary indeed. As a private entity, there are certainly questions of accountability that arise (stockholders vs citizens, openess of practices and procedures vs. private information and trade secrets, etc.) What about training, what about law enforcement officers representing the communities which they serve? As deputized citizens, must they follow procedures with respect to searches (warrants)? Does Miranda hold for these guys?
