Not About Capital

Photon Couriur linked a blog post about a Dutch parliamentarian who condemns educated women who choose to stay home to raise their children for "wasting capital". In debating her use of the word capital, both bloggers missed a more basic point, that this is a prime argument for the seperation of school and state. When you allow bureaucrats to pay for education, you give them a basis for believing they can decide what should be done with that education.
