CCS’s new National Education Choice Campaign is described in the latest issue of EducationWorld. Spread the word! And thanks Dilip Thakore.

One intersting story in the issue is interviews with several young MPs on the issue of education policy. I was disappointed to see that they all seem to agree on the idea of increasing government spending on education to 6% of GDP. No one seem to ask the simple question: A government that is inefficient in producing simple goods like cement and fertilizers, how would the same government become efficient in delivering complex services like education and healthcare? Let’s have a seminar on public choice for MPs!
