The Public School Monopoly: America’s Berlin Wall?

David Boaz is the executive vice president of the Cato Institute and the author of Libertarianism: A Primer and The Libertarian Reader.

In this video from 1991, Boaz speaks about public schooling at a Libertarian Party of California conference. He evaluates how poorly state schooling educates children and identifies other problems with the system, explains why more spending never fixes these inherent problems, and proposes solutions that would introduce competition in education.
