Here is a unique proposed reform of the public schools. They should be governed by the Koran.
When one group of taxpayers is compelled by law to pay for schools run by people with rival views, there will be political conflict.
When those schools are then made compulsory, unless parents pay for their children’s education out of their after-tax income, we have a formula for tyranny.
This is why public education is a battleground today. Every group wants control over the minds of the next generation.
The solution to this conflict is simple in theory: parent-funded voluntary education. But the people who control the system today will not hear of this. They want the money, the licensing, and the curriculum materials to stay in their hands.
