Public Schools Don’t Take Everyone

Do public schools take all comers? The fact that they do is one argument sometimes offered against privately run schools and against the use of competition in schooling.

There’s one problem: that fact isn’t true.

See this story of some students expelled from a public school in Riverton.

Granted, the school may have had good reason to expell the kids, and they did find schooling elsewhere. Still, no particular school has an obligation to accept them.
