Re: Such high prices!

if corporations ran the schools most of the country would have no education because it would not be freely available.

Then again that is what the 1% want.

Actually, the "1%" want the masses well-educated, so they are as intelligent and as cheap as the offshore labor force.

Unfortunately, the elites that run our country are not the "1%", they prefer to keep the masses ignorant - and that is why we have the massive public indoctrination system.

Public education is "free" by law, but it doesn't have to be operated by the government; we would see far superior results if schools were run competitively by corporations, and parents had the choice where to send their kids.

There is no public function that can't be contracted out, usually for the better.

LOL, if corporations ran education, it would be 1/3rd the price and people would actually get an education. With government control now, it cost far more than it should and people get degrees without having an education.

Wow people actually believe this nonsense you just posted? Talk about NOT having an education (you).

If a corporation ran education, the only thing they would care about would be profits and their shareholders.

There are some things, such as education and healthcare, that NEEDS to be run by the government. But then again I look at your avatar and that explains everything...

Exactly. He's another one of these people who apparently failed social studies because he doesn't understand what socialism is.
