Hmm... and who pays for this "foster-schooling"? The state?
Just like they do now with food and clothes. I had a friend who was a
foster parent for several years. He and his wife have taken in many
kids over the years. Basically, he said it went like this:
- take in foster child
- spend up to $X on clothing (which is reimbursed by the state, of
course you can spend more and it won't be reimbursed)
- spend up to $Y on food (same as above)
- ensure the child receives necessary medical care (many have been
abused, etc; this is also reimbursed)
There is no reason why school can't fit into the same model. In this
case, someone has volunteerd (out of the goodness of his heart) to take
in foster children to give them a more stable home environment than what
they were getting before. The government compensates them for their
expenses. This is not a difficult thing.
Do you honestly believe that if the state stopped providing education
that the state would stop taking the money in taxes? Or would they just
find another high-cost military project to spend it on? Even if they
did "give it back", do you think that what the tax-payer saved would pay
for a good, private education? How many would have their children taken
off them because they couldn't afford it? How many households would be
destroyed by this measure? Only the "bad" ones?
We all know that Social Services are exemplary in the way they
operate... like taking children away from parents just because they're
not Christian. Do you remember the "Satanic Abuse" fiasco started in
America and subsequently here in the UK? How many families were
destroyed? How many children were abused by the state employees at
