That’s why the moral of the story is that we need to break up government school monopolies and harness the power of the market by giving parents and students genuine school choice.

P.S. There’s also strong evidence for school choice from nations such as Sweden, Chile, and the Netherlands.
P.P.S. Needless to say, eliminating the Department of Education is part of the solution.
