Everyone should read this book.
This book truly changed how I view the institution of public education. While I used to consider myself part of the camp of people who believe that the source of the problem with public education is a lack of proper funding, 'Market Education' enabled me to remove my blinders so that I could see that the source of the problem is public education itself. Coulson does a great job of explaining how it is untrue that public education aids in the development of an educated and peaceful society, and in fact shows how state-run education creates a less educated and more hostile populous. He derails nearly every supportive argument for the maintenance of the educational system as we know it, and provides a fairly good proposal for a better educational future. This book should be required reading for all college education majors. It's always healthy for people to question their myths, and this book does just that concerning the myth that says we need the government to education us.
