Writes David Holcberg of the Ayn Rand Institute:

President Bush’s new plan to improve elementary and secondary education will fail for the same reason that all previous plans have failed: the way to improve education is not more government involvement but less–much less.
In fact, education in America will substantially improve only when the government’s virtual monopoly on education is replaced by a free market, where bad schools go out of business, incompetent teachers are fired, and worthless curriculums are dumped.
As long as schools and teachers are not accountable to parents but to the government, students will be trapped in our current educational system, with little hope of getting the knowledge and thinking skills they need to succeed in life.
