So some lady put up a manifesto on Slate demanding that all parents in America put their children into public schools. Because that will make them better. In a few generations. Maybe.

Of course, all is offered is anecdote. No real data on how this magic transformation is to occur other than people with”skin in the game” will demand change.

That’s worked so well for the past fifty years.

Update: It seems Larry Corriea decided that this article was worth one of his infamous fiskings.
