Public libraries are already free. And they have ebooks and internet. You can already learn everything for free. Demanding that everyone else follow Or Else from a syllabus that the powers that be prefer is something else again, something nobody should support.

@me I've suggested in private convos that "we" take the funds going to public schools and instead turn everything into more of a library, could even have expert-teachers on staff or on call with all the extra money so people who needed to learn something could do so. Schools are basically day-care-prisons. Oh well.
