Educating young children is a public good. Everyone wants to use 'it', where 'it' is having more educated people in your society. So it should be paid for by everyone - from general taxpayer funds.


that's the trick though isn't it

not everyone wants the public good of educated children

at the least, to paraphrase, it's not important enough

..: certainly not when there's people to kill &
cities to raze
