A system that socializes the educational monies and opportunities in public schools is Marxist.
It is a mystery why supposedly right-wing states in the US maintain such a system. They should be able to implement a three part school system, roughly corresponding to to upper, middle, and lower class, with students separated in elementary school on the basis of intellectual ability, discipline, and work ethic. Measuring such things objectively is not hard.
Once the streams of students are separated the schools can be optimized to each group's potential...
Such a system would save high income parents the cost of private school, and allow gifted low income students a chance. Indeed, private schools could possibly fill in for the role of the upper class public school track...
The cost of the system would be lower from efficiency gains, and savings could be allocated to scholarships for top students. The states could tailor their Universities to suit the abilities of the more advanced graduates of the upper class schools, thus improving the quality and employment prospects of their graduates.
And the big joke on them comes when only those educated in private schools will have good jobs.
Public school kids will pump gas, stock shelves and clean toilets for a living. Maybe change my diaper when I get old to.
