Goldberg: Do Away with Public Schools

Jonah Goldberg makes a strong case in Tuesday's L.A. Times for whacking the public school system.

It's an excellent argument, if only that it makes people question why we have public education in the first place. As things stand now, people are born into a system of public education and soon take it for granted without questioning why the system exists or if it should exist at all.

As for the financial argument, one need look no further than our own borders and the failing money pit that is the Memphis school system for proof that money isn't the answer for fixing educational institutions.

Goldberg's point, I dare say, is not to advocate for the defunding of the public school system than to embolden the masses against the beast not yet at our doorstep - universal healthcare.
