Let me be sure I have this straight... You are suggesting getting rid of
(free) public school where the student:teacher ratio is ~ 30:1 and having
every family pay $2K - $5K per year (per kid) for a school where the
student:teacher ratio is 50:1? Is that *really* what you are suggesting, or
am I missing something?
