  •  2 reasons why I don't like that approach (3+ / 0-)

    First, I don't think you can run an educational system on a "free market" approach like that.  Letting the market speak does not always produce the best results.

    Second, there are many reasons why a parent might choose one school over another that have nothing to do with educational quality.  Football comes to mind.

    •  then football is their priority (0+ / 0-)

      There are only so many students that can make a football team. if a family is stupid enough to decide on a school ONLY based on its football program, they deserve the school they get.

      I know many Asian American families would let the football school flounder. Give families the freedom to choose what kind of school they want to send their kids to. Not all schools should be similar.

      you can call me praveen.
