Why would the government provide schooling in a 'survival of the fittest' (as in the greedy definition, not the biological one) economy as often is seen the ideal of the 'righties'. In fact, isn't any of them who went to any public school the victim of their greatest fear? The 'handout'? As for serious replies, I would like to hear how the libertarians think on this topic of schooling and government? (fraggle!) Maybe later we can discuss how education should be (or discuss it right now).
