Well, that's an idea that deserves consideration, but only once the
country in question actually does provide free education!
(by which I mean higher education, not the basic education which every
country needs to provide. There's no argument to 'payback' that, it's
already in a countries interest to give its citizens a basic education
(reading and writing, etc.), otherwise it wouldn't be compulsory).
