Jesus, ever hear of a paragraph?

>This is similar to the voucher debate where good schools get better and bad schools get worse only now smart kids get better teachers and under-performing students get little and less.

Why shouldn't smart, high achieving kids get the best teachers? Do you deny that all kids learn at different rates?

>The second flaw in the classical capitalistic economic model as it applies to teachers is that Education is a fundamentally Socialist.

No Comrade, it isn't. First, education is a private good, not a public good. Second, the overwhelming majority of what we learn is done on our own. Consider the incredible success of the Khan Academy, for an example of individuals doing it for themselves. There is absolutely nothing "fundamentally socialist" about education.

Oh, and read this book.

>but it's not like our government controls the means for food production and I hope they never do.

My main point is that government bureaucrats are faced with the same backwards incentives regardless if they are producing food or providing the service of education. Removing competition means no accountability and no pressure to increase quality or reduce costs.

>What is your stance, how would you like our educational system to operate?

I'd like it to operate with zero state involvement.
