Quote of the day: 100% punchline-free

Public education cannot be profit-driven because the desire for profits -- and, in the case of charter schools, the easy availability of free public money -- will reliably outweigh the educational mission of the schools.

It really is that simple. Same with toll roads, health care, Social Security, and just about every other public good that conservatives want to auction off.
