I was feeling the paper until this section which I disagree with:
Others may disagree with the solution purposed by the paper: let the free market take care of education rather than government.
pardon me, I did not read or was aware of the presentation. But on the whole I am a stark advocate of parents teaching their children at home and dismiss the whole illusion of higher education, for it is a farce to say the least... It is all politicaly motivated and orchastrated with zero good intentions of over all out come.
These folks who are the product of public education and some from segregated schools, do you think they fit your descrition????(So-Called) Public Education is for those who desire to be assimilated into the brainwashed condition of being a societal lemming, puppet or sheeple awaiting to be slaughtered...
2 simple questions. 1 where in the world and human history have you seen this idea that neocons have been talking about for 20 years actually work, and of the 85% of the world that cannot afford private education, exactly who will this benefit?There will be competition to create schooling or education that produces the greatest results at the least cost.
Those systems that can do the above will survive in the marketplace by consumer demand.
Those that don't will fall by the wayside.
The competition is wide open: groups, trusts, corporations, churches, organizations, and even government will participate.
The consumer as well as cost will drive the marketplace.
Competition will drive down costs and drive up quality.
The consumer (in this case parents) will be motivated by self interest, interest in their progeny to succeed in society, and their progeny doing better than they have.
