Seventeen to one

Take a listen to the August 7 Cato Daily Podcast interview of Andrew J. Coulson on Education Markets versus Monopolies.

Some poignant facts:
  • Market-based schools where parents pay a significant portion of the cost of their child's education out perform government schools 17:1

  • High school graduates today can't do/don't know anything substancially different than those of 40 years ago despite spending about 2.5 times as much per pupil.
