Better, fairer schooling and a more stable housing market

October 27th, 2010 Posted in Uncategorized by

Paul Collier, Oxford professor and author of The Bottom Billion and The Plundered Planet has a radical proposal for ending the education apartheid that leaves most children in poorer quality schools than their parents would choose.

As well as ending the situation whereby “the parents least committed to their children determine [the] quality” of education that most experience, it would break the link between location and education that has driven up house prices and linked wealth to schooling in the most destructive and counter-productive way.

I have summarised these ideas at the IEA blog, where you can also link to Professor Collier’s original article. Please take a look and join the discussion there.
