No it wouldn't. It *might* be better for those who can pay, and everyone else would get zip.

In any case, private education has to outperform public education because they are asking parents to pay for a service that's available elsewhere for free.

Abolish public education, and the private schools might just start treating parents and students like crap. Certainly, if a single company came to dominate education the way Microsoft dominates software, parents and students *would* be treated like crap.

And there would be no place to go--private or public.
