From New York Post:

At the Orange County Register, Steven Greenhut offers a “thought experiment”: “Imagine if we distributed groceries the way that we distribute learning. You could only shop at grocery stores in your district. The people who run them might not be competent,” but “if you don’t like the selection or atmosphere, you could move to a district with a better store.” This would be “a crazy way to provide food to hungry people” — but “no crazier than the way we provide education to learning-hungry students.” In a market-based education system, the state could provide subsidies to those who need them. “At least we’d have a system built around the key principle that assures the provision of other quality goods and services: competition.”
