"So if you're concerned about widening disparities in income, Greenspan tells readers attracted to his book by its publicists' promise of criticism of George W. Bush, then what you need to do is to 'harness better the forces of competition' in educating kids."

When asked what he considered to be the most dangerous threat to America, Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney did not answer: "Islamic Jihadists." His answer: "Our failing education system."
Public "education" has, over generations, been sold to Americans as a sacred religious idol, to be worshipped with genuflections and sacrifices ... and heavy penalties for the sacrilege of questioning the idolatry.
The Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman, like Copernicus pointing out to the Catholic Church that the earth was round, pointed out that a government monopoly on the administration of education seriously stifles innovation and productivity. And of course like religious zealots, leftist "progressives" who control education in America have tried to burn Milton Friedman at the stake.
But a far greater danger was pointed out by Thomas Jefferson and great champions of liberty ever since. Public "education," by virtue of being in the hands of government, is more appropriately called "indoctrination." Maybe math and reading will be taught, maybe it won't. But nothing will be taught which leads students to question the ruling political philosophy, and everything will be taught which glorifies government ... no matter how oppressive and foolish government might become.
In other words, public "education" has one underlying goal: create non-thinking true-believers when it comes to the system itself. It is a religion.
But most religions are honest about what they are doing. They say, "Hey, we are a religion."
There is no honesty in public "education." They peddle their indoctrination without letting anyone know they are a religion ... so nobody ever questions public "education" they way they question religions.
The tenth plank of the Communist Manifesto written by wannabee slave master Karl Marx was free education for all children in public schools. As insane and power-mad as Karl Marx was, he had learned that successful oppression of a people requires brainwashing their minds at a young age.
So anyone who sees the value of freedom and a free market would not hesitate to support free market schooling, right? Well ... that is unless they've become "educated" by public schools.

In his revelation for the 21st Century, A Course in Miracles, Jesus Christ teaches that open-mindedness, not government indoctrination, is our birthright as children of God:
The centrality of open-mindedness, perhaps the last of the attributes the teacher of God acquires, is easily understood when its relation to forgiveness is recognized. Open-mindedness permits him to be judged by the Voice for God on His behalf. Only the open-minded can be at peace, for they alone see reason for it.
