  1. Excellent! Very glad to see this “full privatization” argument here. It’s important. It’s logical. It’s based on historical facts. And the best thing – it’s the most moral. No coercion is involved in private education, as it is so endemic in government’s “public” education.

  2. Excellent!! Yes I couldn’t agree more.

  3. Peter hits the nail on the head. If we libertarians want to know the most effective way to combat statism, we need to delve into how the socialists have been gaining ground over the last century. The key is to control the education of the next generation. It is high time we took back the youth and the educational institution which shapes their paradigms. I support the home school movement and even vouchers.
