"The more subsidized it is, the less free it is. What is known as "free education" is the least free of all, for it is a state-owned institution; it is socialized education - just like socialized medicine or the socialized post office - and cannot possibly be separated from political control." - Frank Chodorov, "Why Free Schools Are Not Free"

Freedom is the Solution for Quality in Education

Government's function should be to protect people's right to pursue their education, not to provide them with one. Education should be a private business.
by David Holcberg

Despite the tragic results of public education, American parents have yet to realize that to properly educate their children, they must entirely reject the current state-controlled system. They must demand that government give them back their taxed money so they can assume sole responsibility for choosing and paying for their children's education. The government has no right either to the money it taxes, or to the students it forcefully enrolls. Government should not be in the education business. Government is a political institution, not an educational one. Its function is to protect people's right to pursue their education, not to provide them with one. Education should be a private business.

In a free market, different schools and teachers would compete for students. The best schools would succeed and multiply and their franchises would pop up everywhere. The worst schools would just loose their students and close down. Parents would have the freedom to choose their children's schools. In a free market, curriculums would compete against each other; so would textbooks and teaching tools; and the best would drive out the worst.
