Should All Students Be Required To Attend Public School?
As I see it, it would give all parents an incentive to ensure that public schools were functioning properly and were teaching at their best level. The wealthier parents would no longer have the opportunity to withdraw their children and leave the public schools to those in the lower socioeconomic classes. In some ways, the same arguments that are used in favor of compulsory voting (in countries like Australia) would be applicable to this question. Thanks to all who respond.
