A modest proposal for education reform

This was inspired by reading about Michigan Governor Rick Snyder conniving to reduce spending for public education to $5,000 per student, while simultaneously having his own children enrolled in a private school that charges $20,000 per student.

Let's make it a matter of law that every elected official must enroll his or her children in the public school system.

That means every governor/premier/minister of education will by law have to put their children in the same system they provide for the common folks.

Yes, this proposal is short on specifics...

But it doesn't require them. Pass this law and the details will soon enough take care of themselves.
