Those self-entitled students

I'm not talking about the University students in Qu├ębec. I'm talking about those ingrates in High School. We know most don't work very hard or apparently learn very much(have you tried reading a 1st year uni student's essay, lately?). So why do we bother paying for public highschool? Let them work, I say, and if they want more than flipping burgers, they can save for high school.

Regardless, at least 1% of the population have the wherewithall to make sure their kids get a decent High School education. So there will be a future generation to lead our people, who are all a bunch of free-loaders, what with their medicare, and subsidised daycare and free elementary education.

At least now parents have to bake cookies and buy most of the children's supplies. It gets those free-loading children and their parents off their lazy asses. Children in some countries go to work. They understand the value of smashing bricks into gravel. And they learn it young, typically age 5.

So why should we pay for university educations? Or any educations? Let the kids pay for their crummy educations.

Oh yeah, we'll pay for their education or the lack off it, one way or the other.
