I'm sorry but I can't keep

I'm sorry but I can't keep reading. This article is absolutely stupid.

-But it seems to me that if every single parent sent every single child to public school, public schools would improve. This would not happen immediately. It could take generations. Your children and grandchildren might get mediocre educations in the meantime, but it will be worth it, for the eventual common good.

Why the hell would I want to send my children, right now, to public school, to get a sub-par education when I can send them to private school, or home-school them, right now and they get a great education. Which in turn would yield their children a better education, and so on and so forth. Why would I even consider the eventual common good, when I can have the same outcome sooner. Why waste the time/money/effort when there is a better alternative available.

If ignorance is bliss, Washington DC must be heaven.
