And, yes, I know you won't agree with me here, but it does make conversation relatively useless, since you have decided that -- whatever works in other countries -- the correct approach in the US must and can only be privatizing the schools. Whereas I see no reason to believe that is a good idea and, more significantly, it's not going to happen. So I'd rather talk about the kinds of reforms that might happen and that I'm willing to work toward.
Oh I'm willing to compromise on other, lesser legislation--a hybrid public/private system, for example. But that doesn't change that I think that a fully privatized system would be the most efficient.
