Buffett and Rhee on Improving Education

Courtland Milloy passes on this bit of wisdom from Mr. Buffett via Ms. Rhee: the way immediately to improve our schools is to outlaw private schools and then use a lottery to determine which school each student attends.

Works for me, but totally impossible to adopt.  Though back in the old days of the one-room schoolhouse, that was basically what happened.  Everyone in the area got the same educational opportunity.
