It's really not needed. The vast majority never use their education they
already get, and the money could be spent on doing real research to prolong
life. In fact why not abolish public schools? We could really use that money
for research. People will still learn to read and write...I think. It really
doesn't take that long if the kid is curious about. Public schoolw are just
a waste of time for most.

Of course there are concerns about where to put all those kids while monmy
is out filling the tax coffers. That would not go over too well.
