Deregulation of Public Education Proposal


The link listed above is a proposal made in response to a request from the Utah State Legislature in 2003. It proposes structural changes to our system of public education, changes to the infrastructure, changes in teacher training, and a simplifying of the government intrusion into local schools to more fully empower parents and teachers.

The proposal includes plans for a trial pilot. Parts of it could be implemented separately providing measurable improvement, but the total would provide more than the sum of its parts. The magic of full implementation of this deregulation plan would be in the improvement it would bring to parents and teachers, which would bring greater advances to the children than any other reformation or restructuring thus far proposed. Rather than guaranteeing government-forced success, which doesn’t work anyway, this proposal clears out weeds that are choking success, making it much more likely.
