I'm hearing a lot of "What if a parent can't afford to send their child to school?"s. In Colorado Springs, CO you can send your child to a private school for about $300 a month. Now, if every child went to private schools it would drive the price down. Each parent would probably pay only $100 a month per child. That's cheap! And while better schools cost more, a $100 a month school will still be a great school do to competition.
