Education

+ - Nationalizing Education is Dangerous->

An anonymous reader writes "'Fat people, smokers and soon drinkers deserve less health care because they bring their problems on themselves. In short, they deserve it. This is a perfectly logical perspective, and if I were in charge of everybodys health care, I would probably resort to similar logic.'

What would happen if we used similar logic to nationalized education? Would schools in predominantly black areas receive less funding because those areas tend to be socio-economically disadvantaged and thus worse performing in school? According to the logic of rationing, this would make perfect sense."
