Another Lib Misunderstands Capitalism

It looks like Bruce Crumley over at Time Magazine needs to read some Milton Friedman.  From a recent Time article entitled Should Students Be Paid To Do Well In School?

Few things in France can provoke heated debate faster than moves to tinker with the country’s vaunted public-education system, which embodies republican values that date back to the French Revolution.  It’s especially true when the changes involve an idea as capitalistic and nonegalitarian as paying certain students — the ones most apt to fail and drop out — to attend classes and get good grades.

Let’s get this straight, paying students to learn and get good grades in school is about as nanny-state as you can get.  There is nothing capitalistic about it.
