It is almost impossible to compare private and public schools, as Wade Miller does in "Evils of socialism" (Forum, March 8). Private schools spend much more per pupil than do Utah's last-in-the-country public schools.
Parents who take the time to get their children into a private school are obviously involved in their children's education. Sadly, in many cases in public schools, that is not the case.
Private schools have admission standards; public schools must take all students.
