No, it will just create really empty buildings and buildings where kids fall out of the upper floor windows because they're so packed.
You are acting as if it's the SCHOOL that makes kids smart, where it is in fact PARENTS creating a nurturing environment and encouraging children to learn that makes the difference. I have seen people as dumb as dogshit attending private schools (very motivated teachers!), and people who could be the next Einstein attending regular public schools (very unmotivated teachers!
The school has very little to do with anything, other than providing more material to learn.
Say, isn't it good Conservatism to enforce solid family values? No, we better just send our kids to "better" schools so they "learn more."
