Socialists in education

Over the years I have watched the debate over methods for parents to use part of the tuition tax money to enroll their children in a private school. In every proposal I have read, the proposition is that part of the tax money allocated for the student be given to the parents. If the school has one less student but part of the tax money, then the school has more money per student.

So what's the beef all about?

It has nothing to do with money. It has to do with total control. No socialist would give up control of students if he could in any way retain it. Hence the vociferous opposition to the plan for giving part of the parents' tax money back to them, along with the control over the education of their children.
