What is government monopoly education?

Government monopoly education is when the government creates a local education monopoly using confiscated funds from homeowners who have little choice in the matter. Like most monopolies, this arrangement produces high costs and inferior quality.

A common characteristic of such corruption is the presence of shills who pretend it doesn't exist. The excuses for public ed failure absent the obvious union interference are laughable: "special ed", "troubled children", and "violent TV".

If government schools had to compete on even footing with private schools, they would be crushed underfoot. This is why the teachers unions oppose school choice.

Read about the way they ruined choice in Utah and more recently Washington D.C. These parasitic unions benefit from the monopoly. Public education will never be worth much until we rid ourselves of the teachers' unions.
