"Do you think nobody would willingly entrust his children to you or pay you for teaching them? Why do you have to extort your fees and collect your pupils by compulsion?" - Isabel Paterson

Public Education aka Government Education
Compulsory education opened the door to welfare state. Public Education when it first started in our country was to help educate those individuals whose families could not afford to educate them. Now all children can be "educated" at the expense of someone else even if said families are either capable of educating their own child, or can afford to educate their own children at their own expense. The desire by some to dismantle the current public "education" system as it is, is not a desire to have an uneducated populace. On the contrary, public "education" is failing to actually educate millions of children every year. Those people who want to dismantle the current system still want children to be educated, just not "educated" in a broken, corrupt, wasteful system. Much like the welfare system is today.
