    Broad generalizations are not at all helpful.

    Where is this free market of which you speak?  And where is this socialism that is so mediocre?

    You have consistently established that you know nothing of political philosophy.
     
    Yet you babble on.
     
    If we are socialist than who is capitalist? 

    Or maybe you are saying our brand of socialism is mediocre in that it is so very capitalist in nature...

    Nah, that would demonstrate some intelligent thought.   Not possible for you.

    Blah, Balh, blah.

    Are students free to go to school or not?

    Are parents able to direct their education funds where they need to go, ie.e where their child is being educated?

    The public school system is in the main socialist.  The means of production are in the control of the government.  The production itself, as we are told by teacher unions, is sub par, needing more money given to the government.

    Hence, socialism, hence, mediocrity.

    I dunno.  Maybe it is the best system possible given the contraints, but let's not delude ourselves into thinking it is either a free market or working fine.

    Yes. Students can go to public school, private school, parochial school or be home schooled.  Apparently you did not know that.  Parents' educational funds only apply to the last three categories.  The first category is covered by taxes which are paid to cover many diferent social needs through a democratic process. Apparently you did not know that either. This is not socialism. You definitely do not know that.

    And if you believe that having public education is the definition of "socialism" than virtually every country except those riven by civil war fit that criteria. Therefore the term as you use it means virtually nothing.

    Thus you have proven again you know nothing about political philosophy.

    Hint:  Socialism is about how society should own the means of production. It is about economics, not education.

    Read a book.  Any book.  It can only help.
