Suppose for some strange reason, one wished to destabilize society. How might that be best accomplished? First, downgrade the public school system by consistently critisizing it, and starve it for funds. This would incentivize the establishment of alternate institutions - lauded for the property of "choice". These alternates would be defined by race, culture, religion and status. So, rather than a shared public school experience which enables societal cohesion, we would hive off children into enclaves where they would have their "we vs them" attitudes reinforced. The next stage might be to establish post sec institutions along the same exclusive lines.
To quote a line from a Kris Kristopherson tune: "Everyone needs someone to look down on."
And happy pi day to all - I'm old enough to remember when it was on 22nd of July!
