It's possible that some new way will replace existing public schools, but there would simply be other things to complain about. It won't lead to some bright new rational world.
All societies are imperfect. Some have slavery. The idea that there is some kind of "healthy" society that we can achieve if we follow some blueprint( Such as freeing the slaves. isn't so very different from left-wing utopianism, and a slave free nation is utopian, of course and the idea that things the slavery t that you don't like are "cancers" that have to be cut out is positively totalitarian. It's totalitarian to take property away from the slave holders and expect men to be free.

There are institutions that are soooo evil that they must be abolished, even if those enslaved in those institutions are worse off materially when finally emancipated.
Now, we may misuse it, but that does not diminish its perfection.
And that we may misuse it does not let the crazy control freaks and God-complex power lusters rationalize it into disrepute.
