Uncommon Sense

A great and brief essay providing one argument as to why the idea of public education as a core function of our government ought to give us pause for thought.  Based on economics, no less!

Is it possible – or wise – to divorce ourselves from a state-funded (and State defined) educational system in an era where the expectation is that both parents should be working outside the home?  Is reducing the state’s role in educational mandates the equivalent of cultural suicide?  Or is it possible that people are ingenious enough to come up with alternative solutions to the one-model-doesn’t-fit-all approach that has dominated our country for most of the last century?
