    Education is simplest problem ever. Just as there is no correct way to raise children, top down approach from the Federalles doesn’t work. Like tax, health etc let each State decide their own education policy and fight it out like the five divisions of General Motors for market share.

    So why stop at the State level? Before the 1872 Education Acts (colonial, approx dates), education was entirely private, the responsibility of parents to organise and authorise. Governments used the excuse of church denominational bickering to “standardise” and “secularise” it.

    The result has been a decline ever since.
