Thanks for your comments, Camara. On your last point, if institutions are too weak to regulate a private market for education, why do we think they are strong enough to deliver quality education in the public sector? Sometimes, regulation requires less monitoring and enforcement than public service delivery. Of course, the possibility of political capture is there in both cases, so we must design the systems to minimize this. Note also that, whether we like it or not, a private market for education already exists, so the point is how we can make it more effective, especially for poor people.
