This paper attempts to demonstrate that private schools succeed at preparing graduates to succeed after graduation, whereas public schools do not. The paper puts forth the hypothesis that private schools teach their students to succeed, not because of a great deal of money poured into education, but because the schools are free to teach the curricula they choose and because they prepare students to return to their own cultures and succeed. The paper further hypothesizes that public schools, on the other hand, are not free to teach curricula not aimed at improving standardized test scores, and the successful public school student is not prepared to return to his or her culture in a trade, but to transition out of it into an anachronistic academic culture.
