Public Education after High School Should be a privilege

We have to take three things into consideration:

1. State resources, however big, is always limited. Funds always have a limit.
2. Large part of those resources came from taxes paid by the people.
3. Some people are just really not fit for higher level of education because they may have flatter learning curve or they are simply lazy or they just want to party more and study less.

Therefore, the state should spend its resources more for people who are worthy of the investment - those who excel in academic endeavors, those who show genuine desire for learning, in short people of exemplary academic character because they have higher chances to succeed and and higher chances to eventually give back something to the state than those who are academically unfit, lazy, 'party-more-study-less' people.

To pay for education of someone who is lazy or someone who wants to party more and study less is an injustice to the taxpayers. Since it is state-sponsored education, the people who avail of it are expected to study and finish a degree. Taxpayers do not pay taxes so that some people can use they money intended for education on booze or other non-academic expenditures.

Public Education after High School should be a privilege.

Those who are poor but worthy of being sponsored by the state can always apply for scholarship grants that would help them pay for tuition and other related expenditures. So, if the option of applying for grants is always open for them, then we have no need to make it an option for 'a great deal of people'.

Having public education after high school a privilege would simply create a world where the rich, or some such class with the access to this privilege, would rule and dominate the uneducated. Mind you, this happens today, but to less of a degree than if it were actually not an option for a great deal of people.
