Free public education is a right

Free public education is an entitlement. It takes money from one person and gives it to another. That is an entitlement — the redistribution of wealth. All Referendum 1 is asking is that parents be allowed to take some of the money available to educate their children. Government subsidy? Yes. Entitlement? Yes. But that is what all public education is.
