You must be a huge capitalist type, huh?
I believe most people send their children to private schools so they can be the best members of society. It's kind of programmed in a person to want the best for their child. A programming that even I wouldn't want to override because I enjoy the feeling. I would assume the payoff would be the pleasure feeling you get. How much is that worth to ya?
