And you're unwittingly playing right into the tea-bagger fundamentalist's hands by using that argument. Their plan is to say "see, public schools bad, private schools good" as a reason to give less funding to public schools, which then cause them to become worse, which they can use as a reason to give them even less funding, in a downward spiral.

Em...do you know what the US govt. spends on public schools? Do you know what the rate of increase in spending on public schools has been over the last 40 years or so?
