Public schooling isn't the pinnacle of education.
Because when you make dollars the declaration of currency, instead of integrity or value of life or equal access of opportunity, you have already conceded the value that you wish to hold in highest regard. You have stacked the deck that markets always have all the facts to make determinations and that like a god it magically always gets it right instead of just at times being a Ouiji Board or a cornered market.
