Scholastic Welfare: Meet Medical Welfare

If you wonder what the new health care system will look like, the public schools would be a good object for study.

You can find private schools and some of them strive to be affordable. But if you want a real education, you had better be able to fork out the tuition ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 per year. The presence of the Public system alters the private schools in many ways, especially through the process of assessment and regulation.

What will be similar? What will be different?

I don’t look forward to finding out.

When the two join forces (and why wouldn’t they – the calls for efficiency will demand it), will our intelligence and our health follow the path of our souls.

  1. Let’s not forget that public schools also offer an education (though obviously in most cases a very flawed one) to those that could not otherwise afford it. Or, to put it another way, a child is not completely deprived of an education because his or her parent cannot afford one. Hopefully the same can be said of health care, whatever else comes of it.

  2. Would you support a movement that ask participants to pledge to vote against any Senator or Representative who votes for health care legislation without first posting it on the web and giving at least five days for the public to find out what is there?

    • I think that would be a symbolic gesture that would have no effect except to make people feel like they have done something about the issue. I would “support” (whatever that means) a movement that comes up with a workable strategy to put our federal government back within the limits defined for it by the constitution. Our golden opportunity came and went in the last decade.
