This is an excellent read from the Economist. It argues that Public Sector education must benchmark off Private Sector.
Unfortunately, the Economist article did not go far enough for me. Intervention is also required to address the following areas reducing public sector education’s effectiveness:
  • Political meddling
  • Bureaucracy
  • Union power
