    Skip Oliva pointed me towards a good column on “Why Public Education Will Never Get Better.” I think Hurd misses a bit with his USPS analogy. The school situation is far worse than the Post Office. I’m pretty sure the State won’t seize my house if I quit buying 37-cent stamps. Definitely worth a read.
