You consistently fail to understand that it is not only in your best
interests to have your kids get a good education, but also to have the
kids from down the block, or two cities over, receive one as well. The
government is the only mechanism in our society whose mandate it is to
make the latter happen. So yeah, we all need to work WITH the
government in one form or another. Private Enterprise is not
particularly motivated by balance.
