Private schools are unfair and should be eliminated altogether. The quality of your education should not be determined by how much wealth your parents possess, nor should parents be allowed to decide what facts kids should and should not get to be exposed to. The truth is the truth and facts only lie when you can't see all of them. The money that goes toward this crap should be diverted to fixing our public school systems, which are pretty awful in most inner city areas.
Doctors Without Borders: one of the few charity groups you can rely on to actually do real good in the world.

"The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all." - H. L. Mencken, unsourced

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"- Isaac Asimov, Column in Newsweek (21 January 1980) [source]
