<This sure would make me wonder that those automobile factory workers know about the automobiles being produced. And it sure would make me support efforts to open up the automobile market to true competition.>

But the automobile market is open to true competition, and there are good cars and lousy cars. Both sell, but they sell at different prices. If I want a quality car, I have to pay for it. If I am relatively poor I have to settle for a poorly made vehicle because that is all I can afford.

While I don't particularly like the idea of comparing an education to a depreciable consumer item such as an automobile, I'll let the analogy stand for the moment and simply ask, Shelby, whether you think it is appropriate for the rich to have a better shot at a quality education simply because they are rich, while the poor are relegated to inferior education because that is all they can afford? As far as I am concerned, that is the question that lies at the heart of this debate. It is not and never will be about free choice or open competition. It's about abuse of power and the penchant of the "haves" to force their will upon the "have-nots."
