Regarding your, "Let's Do It Like They Do In Botswana,"
Within my budget constraint, I can freely go to any grocery store I want and buy food. I can freely choose any car dealership and buy a car. I can freely buy whatever house I want or not buy one at all and rent. I can buy clothes, vacations, electronics all on my own. But somehow, choice is magically transformed into a bad word when it comes to school.
And the only defense you can give is it will turn us into Botswana?
By the way, thanks for the chart of spending versus performance. I'll save that for later.
