why should the State "prioritize commercial for-profit service providers" when that's the job of the Market? You keep making this Strawman argument about the State banning them when they are in fact allowed because they serve a niche market segment. The State should instead prioritize community-based non-profit servic
Because it would be more cost-efficient for the state to have market take care of childcare, and instead focus state efforts to helping those really poor who would remain outside market.
The private childcare market needs to grow from a niche market to such volume, that it starts to auto-correct flaws (such as RYB Education has experienced) through market mechanisms. There have to be multiple proiders, and they have to be so big that customer opinions have a meaning for them. Volume and competition would also push prices down, so that more families can access those.
even though their taxes go to State-funded non-profit public schools that they don't use.
I think that we discovered in last few poists, that even if Chinese tax-payers would choose for-profit schools, until September 2017 those schools were in fact (fake) non-profit schools. The state perhaps didn't directly fund them, but at least gave certain tax and land incentives that made those schools a little bit cheaper for those consumers. Certainly if these consumers didn't pay taxes for that part then the state would not have had to provide those incentives either. But they did, and state provided.
Thus, in matter of primary education it does (did) not matter that families paid taxes to fund public schools, because they benefited from that even if they used those so-called private schools.
Now that the regulations changed in September 2017, we will see how much this taxpayer issue, together with (or via) expected increase in private school prices, will move students from private schools to public schools.
The rest of your post doesn't make sense at all.
Maybe it's you? It starts to look like certain details you just don't want to discuss and use that as convenient way to avoid doing so.
