Education

I don't always like getting political (which is mostly a lie) but I've been getting more and more strident about public education. Education is a human right and should be treated as such. I am afraid that the weird property tax funded way that America does public education is going to cause a massive gulf in abilities between the very wealthy and the very poor.

I also believe that universities should have no tuition. Student debt is crippling people's ability to live any sort of life. To be fair, I truly think that university should not only be tuition-free but that university students should be given "wages". I am dangerously socialist and more than a little progressive.

All I know is that I would never raise a child here. Education disparities are a problem all over but America is probably one of the worst in the developed nations.
