Please explain to me why schooling must be treated differently from food
clothing and medical care.  Really, explain it.  If a parent neglects
his or her child, the child suffers.  This is no different.  Your
argument is like saying that because the government does not ration food
out to everyone, if a parent doesn't feed his child that the child is
made responsible.  That is patently absurd.
