One argument for public education asserts that a democracy needs an educated body of voters in order to make the best possible choices for our governmental leaders. Sadly, many Americans simply do not vote: only 61.4% of US citizens eligible to vote actually voted in the 2016 election, and of the US citizens between the ages of 18 and 29, only 46.1% voted (Source: US Census Bureau).
