Do you have any sources to back the second line of your last statement, Shaun? And Kevin, did you go to public school or private for either primary and secondary education?
Not at all, actually. Anecdote is not evidence, Shaun. Especially when attempted to make a argument based on statistical evidence which you haven't actually provided or even attempted to shine more light on. So far, you've confidently mentioned 44 men, several of whom have received boarding school or private secondary educations, comprising the small set of people who make up our American Presidents. You then continue to mention actors, one to be exact, who have attended public school. What's the tally for that group of individuals? And then engineers and scientists... do you actually have a number? The conversation about the value of public education in America needs hard truths, Shaun. Not fluff.
