Real Competition

Scott McPherson has posted another good article on schooling. It's a two-part article: Part 1 is at http://www.fff.org/freedom/fd0512d.asp and Part 2 is at http://www.fff.org/freedom/fd0601d.asp.

Here's an excerpt from Part 2:

A person’s competence in the marketplace is determined by something more concrete than his ability to perform on demand like a circus animal. He doesn’t take a written test to prove his worth; his abilities are revealed through trade with voluntary consumers. That is true competition.

Amen!

This could apply to a person's competence in almost any field ... even those which depend upon tests (medical professions, the law), the ultimate "test" is how the person functions in the field in the "real world."
