Dear Danboyi, I couldn't agree more. A good public education system means public spending - with at least some private provision. This suggests a systems approach is required, where clear standards are formulated by central authorities and measurable outcomes are maintained, and significant decision-making power is devolved to schools through autonomy reforms. At the same time financial resources need to flow to local decision-makers, under a strong accountability framework enforced by government. Above all, innovation in the market for education needs to be accompanied by a strong evaluation program, showing what works, where and for whom. Thank you, Harry
