Unfree education

Creating government schools violates basic principles of economics. First, it violates the notion of consumer sovereignty. Parents are told where their children are to go to school, what the curriculum will be, how many days the child must attend school each year, and which holidays will be observed. The unit of society patronized by government is the school, not the consumers of education. Schooling may be “free” but parents are not free to choose.
