    and so I'm not clear why we need private alternatives at all.

    If it is in the public interest to have an eduated populace, then the public should be responsible for seeing to it that the education provided is appropriate.

    The school-district level is too low; my gut feeling is that the national level is too high. Unfortunately, the US has such overlapping yet rigid middle layers that what's needed may not be possible now.

    Maybe this whole education thing needs to be rethought from the bottom up.
