The message is clear. The only class worthy of a proper education is the rich. If you cannot afford an education then take up a trade. That is the message being sent and, I fear, the message being received.
A Free Education for All Preserves a Sense of Equity
The American Dream that anyone, no matter one's background or income, one could rise above that status to become anything one dreamed of becoming. Much of this 'dream' was founded in a free and public education for all children.
Are you prepared to give up on the dream of success? The dream of your child rising to the highest office in the land? If You are then sit back and let the oligarchs tell you you are less able or qualified. If you aren't then join the Resistance and vote for your self-interests economically and educationally.
