Letter: Funding ‘over-education’ of our children never a waste

US, March 27, 2019: “Bigger outrage felt over ‘free’ college-for-all plan” (Letter to the editor, March 19):

Fred Gutmann may be trying to be funny, but I do not comprehend his humor/sarcasm. This is the first time I recall anyone complaining that we are wasting billions of dollars on “over-education” for the children in our society according to mercurynews.com

While the cheating scandal has revealed the tawdry allegations of rich parents using money to get their children enrolled in prestigious schools, is that fundamentally different from those parents who simply make a large donation to get their kid enrolled?

Perhaps this explains why Donald Trump is adamantly opposed to releasing his school transcripts.
