Education should NOT be COMPULSORY BUT TAX SUPPORTED.
There should be many different kinds of schools (from traditional to
Sudbury-like), homeschool resource centers, etc. And they can grow on
private initiative as well as being initiated by the state. There would
be a kind of market, but it wouldn't depend on whose kid's parents can
afford a school and whose can't. Rather it would depend on which schools
the kids decide to go to - if they want to attend a school at all.
These schools would be completely tax-funded. But that does not mean the
government has any influence on their content. For example, in Germany
the political parties receive government-money, 1 DM ($0,45) per year
for every vote they got in the past election. Nevertheless the state has
no influence on the political program of the parties.
