On the contrary, it costs a minimum of a billion dollars and a team of
smart engineers to develop and produce a good car. Good schools only
require a similar level of dedication from a far less skilled group of
people and a building to be dedicated in. The fact that home schooled
kids perform far above the mean of public and private school students
speaks volumes of the ease by which a good education is produced.
