Public School Funding

Here's something I don't understand. Why do we let the children of the very rich attend grade school for free? Granted, many of them go to private school, but I do know some well off people who went to public school. Why don't we make them pay the actual cost? Why subsidize (as per the last post) Warren Buffett's kids?

The "rich" have the same rights as everyone else. In general, they pay more in real estate and other taxes that support the school system than the lower income or the less "rich".
