Thank you Free Bird! It's nice to see somebody out there has a clue! You are correct! This riot is the result of a mindset that education is a "right" and an "entitlement". Once a person is in the mindset that education is an "entitlement". The next thing that follows in this same person's mind is, "I should not have to pay for an education, and the government should give it to me for free".
Problem is, education is not free! Somehow, someway, somebody, somewhere has to pay for it! I hope I am wrong, but I think this student riot in the UK is a sign of what could pontentially happen in the United States.
