An Educational Interview

A good friend of mine, Andrew Coulson, was recently interviewed on the Larry Elder show to discuss free market education. I think he did an excellent job, both in presentation and in his ability to cite the relevant facts extemporaneously. I was particularly interested to learn that he now prefers tax credits to vouchers, since the latter leave too much leeway for continued government interference. (Scroll to minute 26:30).

Ultimately, the battle for free markets in education (and in everything else) has to be fought by defending man's rights -- and their basis: egoism and reason. But in validating the global principles involved, it's essential to examine the historical records and to confirm that the moral is indeed the practical. In this regard, Andrew's work on education is without peer.

So thanks again Andrew for all your efforts.

Merci pour the kind words, Amit. Incidentally, I finally found the nerve to Google "thrutch." Was this the definition you had in mind?

Cheers,
Andrew
