Public Education as we have now in the USA is a monopoly. Monopolies don't do well in any kind of business or educaton. Public Schools are like the old Ma-Bell AT and T telephone monopoly. Remember the clunky phones that AT and T sold us year after year. What happened when the telephone monopoly was abolished in favor of open telephone competition? We have a vibrant competitive advancing telephone business environment which is selling us the products that we want and enjoy, ie. Galaxy, Iphone, Ipad, Razr, etc. This is want we should want for our children........a vibrant competitive advancing education environment .........nothing less. I don't know about you, but holding back our children's education and paying exhorbitant taxes to pay inflated teacher union contracts has got to stop. We need competition through school vouchers in educating our young children, just like we have competition at the college level today via Pell Grants. It is the very same thing.
