Many countries have cheaper and more effective education, alternatives for non college bound students, and higher degrees of social mobility but Americans are exceptional therefor fuck learning from others.
The American government at this point is one of the oldest continuing regimes in the world. It turns out pre-industrial consistutions are less than ideally suited to govern post-industrial societies. The shitty American education system is a victim of it.
Getting Americans to agree to that type of taxation would be easier than amending the Constitution.
I don't find it odd that Americans like their Constitution. It's proven to be very adaptable.
