sigh* I’m right there with you. People seem to think that with all charter schools, poor folks will be able to choose. But how do they get their kids to the school? There’s no mandate that schools must accept them. So, when the public school, which takes anyone and everyone, closes, and those poor kids can’t get into the local charter/private schools, even with money, what do they do?
And you’re right, the Uber comparison is silliness. Though I can imagine a word where one opens an app and rather than cars, there are little mortar board hats all over the place indicating a person who is open for students. Just like the different kinds of cars, you’d have different subjects. “English,” “economics” etc. :D
