17. He went to Lakeside School.


I hear it's a great place if you have the connections and money to get in. Tuition is $27K a year. I agree with Gates. We need to reform education in this country, but I think we have the cart before the course. We should start by imposing the same accountability model on Ivy League pipelines like Lakeside that Bill thinks are appropriate for peasants. We could also spend $27K annually on public school kids and switch to the same elite educational model used at Lakeside rather than the school to prison pipeline Bill champions. If the vulture philanthropists had to pay to make public schools into Lakeside school rather than for profit boot camps, we might find them losing their enthusiasm for reform.
