Bigger Idea

"Bernie Sanders's big idea: Make college free for everyone"

Ho hum.  This old chestnut?  I got a more intriguing, and, dare I say, BIGGER idea... Charge people to attend High School.  BAM!

Gotta admit you don't hear that one every day.  And it would make a HS diploma more valuable.  By definition.  People will want the best one they can get for their money.  Like the best smartphone for the money. 

Just a thought.

It almost sounds like this would have some of the same effects predicted in a voucher based system. If you can take your money elsewhere, the schools have a high incentive to compete for your dollars. Not that the unions would ever allow such a thing.
