Education Monopoly

"The real problem is that the public-school system is, in effect, an educational garbage dump. No matter how much money we pump into these schools, they will not improve because the system's foundation is rotten. It is a compulsory government-controlled near-monopoly- that is the rot under its foundation. Just as the government-controlled food system in the communist Soviet Union produced failure and famine, so our government-controlled public schools produce educational failure for our children. In both cases, that failure is built into the system because compulsory government control strangles free choice and competition." Joel Turtel in Public Schools, Public Menace
