Our Schools Need Competition Now Our Schools Need Competition Now

John Stossel in: Our Schools Need Competition Now points to some of the problems that are inherant in our monopoly public education system:
This week's back-to-school ads offer amazing bargains on lightweight backpacks and nifty school supplies. All those businesses scramble to offer us good stuff at low prices. It's amazing what competition does for consumers. The power to say no to one business and yes to another is awesome.

Too bad we don't apply that idea to schools themselves.
I am a firm believer in competition, and, for that reason, pay the money to send my kid to private school. Because of competition for tuition monies, private schools are far more accountable than are public schools. They keep their eyes on what is important: preparing their students for college and an information based economy.
