If a capitalist can get a woman to d...

If the discussion is about day care versus college then one reason it costs more is class sizes are smaller in day care than colleges.
Plus state universities are far more subsidized than day cares making it cheaper than it should be on the students/parents.
Also, not all day cares are subs...
