The contributor is wrong about so many points that it is hard to cover all of them, but I particularly find amusing his idea that public schools are a more competitive model than school choice through a voucher system. His comments stating that the risk to home values is greater with vouchers is incomprehensible.
With school choice, there is the opportunity for not one, but any number of excellent schools to locate in a community, sustained by the success they provide for their students and recognized for meeting the needs of the public. Compare this to the average public school which is essentially a "take it or leave it" proposition that most parents have limited input to, less chance to seriously improve, and no option when it comes to support. His assertions might be believable were it not for the fact that "public" schools have had a virtual monopoly in education and people are still clammoring for choices. It rather smacks of the old days when the US post office bragged that it was the envy of the world, but didn't manage anything like package tracking or rapid delivery until private companies showed it could be done.

Let's examine some of the bad ideas the governments have forced down the throats of the citizens since public schools were forced upon the nation during reconstruction and Jim Crow.
We were once a nation that believed in natural law/natural rights. Today most of the population has been indoctrinated in the pseudo-philosophy called pragmatism. Also, over the last few decades
the pseudo-philosophy called moral relativism has begun to forced down our throats.
The majority once was menatlly capable enough to see through the false doctines of the social darwinists and darwinism. Today they are brainwashed to believe it.
The majority once rejected the extreme misinterpretation of the First Amendment that the establishment clause created a wall of separation; today the majority has been brainwashed to believe it.
Etc, etc, etc.
Government control of education means only one thing; we the people lose our minds and our freedoms through brainwashing.
