I was trying to explain to my brother why the DOE should be abolished, and he kept asking how those in poor areas would be able to fund their schools. He readily admits that the government wastes money. He can also even see how smaller government bodies could be better controlled by its communities. However, I cannot figure out how poor people would be educated without federal funding. I said that people would step up and donate when they see the need, but I don't really believe that. When I read "The Revolution: A Manifesto," I wanted to believe that the people of this country are kind enough to give when they need to, but I really don't think that's the case.
Thanks in advance for any input.
