Commentary: Public school "monopoly" stifles reform

07/12/2006

In this piece, Center for Educational Freedom Director Andrew J. Coulson argues that successful business people often mistakenly assume that excellence in schools can be replicated on a broad scale. Coulson says Warren Buffett's $30 billion gift to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for school reform risks being frittered away unless the public education system undergoes a profound transformation that renders it responsive to competitive market forces.
