John Stossel on Escaping Government Schools

I enjoyed John Stossel's recent column - Escaping 'Government' Schools

He starts the column with:

People say public schools are "one of the best parts of America". I believed that. Then I started reporting on them.

Now I know that public school -- government school is a better name -- is one of the worst parts of America. It's a stultified government monopoly. It never improves.

Most services improve. They get faster, better, cheaper. But not government monopolies. Government schools are rigid, boring, expensive and more segregated than private schools.

John Stossel even mentions homeschooling.

It is a good column.
