A different kind of monopoly

Last week, Mullsjö Community in Sweden, wanna’ try the idea of outsourcing all public schools, from kindergarten to high schools, to a private company.
Of course, this demands a new way of looking at the law which in Sweden makes all communities to have a public school offer. The reason for doing this is regarding to the City Council Chairman Stefan Lindkvist, the lack of public funding. In another words, they wanna’ save money.
To me it’s a mystery that you even could go public with such a stupid idea – why change it from one monopoly to another? How you you be sure of the quality for the kids? At least, but certainly not last, why cutting down on our future? If we don’t give our kids the best opportunities, public or private, we should have the choice of both – what could we expect for the future?
