Originally published in The Education Liberator, Vol. 2, No. 8, October 1996 


A Vote for Idealism


Government money must be followed by government controls. That is why tax-funded schools tend to be half as good as non-public schools — at twice the cost.


My vote is for truly free enterprise schools, without government rebates, vouchers — or controls. Idealistic? Sure. Just like free enterprise grocery stores. Or free enterprise clothing stores. Or very private churches. Vouchers: No! Freedom: Yes!

Dependency: Teachers, too


Once I understood that my salary as a public school teacher is totally dependent on the will of politicians, I decided that when I retire from teaching, I will engage in work that will not keep me subordinate to the whims of the state. I understand how trapped a welfare recipient or someone dependent on government assistance must feel. I don't like it, and I intend to bail out at the first opportunity.
