Public education is a make work project. If education has value, it doesn't need to be given away for free, because people will buy it. A great test of this would be to give vouchers to people and let them trade on the open market. Some people would sell their vouchers to others and some would buy vouchers for more expensive schools. Rather than have a one size fits all education policy, which is what we have today, people would decide the best level of education for themselves and their children.

Why don't we all listen to government created music, or consume government prepared food, or wear government designed clothes? It's because we all recognize that we have unique preferences. Our lives are far better because WE get to choose what we want. Why is education any different?
