examine
quote:
But Mr Gove said all the evidence from Sweden - where non-profit and profit-making groups can set up schools funded by the government, but free from its control - showed free schools raised attainment.

WHY?

I would examine Sweden to determine what made the difference is raising attainment. If the source of this attainment can be discerned, then maybe some middle ground can be reached on the issue. perhaps one that wouldn't open the door to potential abuse.

Simply saying its because they are out of government regulation is not good enough.

Those against or for this proposal should research the Swedish schools in depth before making any decision of such magnitude.

So maybe exam results are improving but does that reflect a genuine improvement in education (whatever that really means)?

That's a very good question. I'm concerned myself with American education over the Internet. Most students i know of online educations are simply googling data or paying for answers. I'm afraid its just for colleges to increase profits and test results so cheated that our so called "educated" are actually just good with google and have no hands on training for their degrees.

i don't think that unregulated schooling is any more appropriate. we'll end up with several spectrum's of education that may be based on bias opinions so much that cooperation and legitimate knoledge will be lost.
