Is education a right or a privilege?
at what level?
All levels. K - PHD.
You have the right t get an education at your own expense.
Education is not a right.
Then the answer is no.
Education through 12th grade or the age 21, whichever is less, is a right.
I agree with the 'right' to high school graduation, 18 or 19, whichever comes first. College? Nope, not a right. Can anyone with developed necessary skills earn a bachelor's or higher? Yes.
Education from grades K-12 are a right. Nobody has the right to a college. For that, you have to work hard between K-12 in the first place or have rich parents.
The fact that 'rich parents' can get imbeciles through is the reason that universities are not held in the esteem they once were. One thing to 'get in' another to graduate. See Teddy Kennedy, he had some problems with the graduation part, they buckled down.
