How to End Socialism in America's Schools
Anyone with an honest recollection of their years spent in government schools knows the problem isn’t money. The problem is that all the wrong people are in those buildings.

People who can’t hack it anywhere else.
The problem is the absence of meritocracy. Not only has meritocracy broken down in the schools, it has been inverted. The mediocre teachers conspire to remove the competent to prevent there being an observable contrast. And how does one restore meritocracy in schooling? By making the schools compete again.
