Too much state control has resulted in inefficiency, national economic decline and a lack of personal and business initiative. Culture of state welfare dependency developed, the cost has reduced investment in industry.

One size fits all
ased on belief that state cannot meet people's needs. In a state-run education system, education ends up as 'one size fits all' that doesn't meet individual and community needs or needs of employers for skilled and motivated workers.

Lower standards
State-run schools not accountable to those who use them - pupils, parents etc. - so are inefficient. Schools get poor results do not change because they are not answerable to consumers. Result is lower standards and less qualitified workforce.

Chubb and Moe
Compared 60,000 pupils from low-income families in 1,015 state and private high schools in USA. Shows pupils from low-income do about 5% better in private; suggest state is not meritocratic. Failed create equal opportunity it doesnt have to repsond.

Chubb and Moe's solution
Introduce market system in state educaion - give control to parents via a voucher system in which each family would be given a voucher to spend on buying education from a school of their choice.
