Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In an ideal world that would be true. However, considering that schools are primarily financed locally by property taxes in the US things get difficult. Also I believe that a bit of class integration wouldn't be a bad idea. Transport would not be a big deal in densely populated areas though it would create serious problems in rural ones.

The idea that I am suggesting is one which exists in Poland and has traditionally worked quite well in the cities though it has begun to break down over the past few years as top urban public schools increasingly choose to segregate the poor from other students, putting them on a different schedule.

But I think it's necessary to understand how the US finances its educational system. I don't think the differences of how the US does it and how it's done in European countries are very well known. Or may be, it's just me who doesn't know. I would love to have someone explain and compare it who knows.
