The competition argument doesn't fly. It's bogus from top to bottom, unless schools are going to be changed to for-profit entities, "competition" does nothing. If the change is what's being suggested however, then the proponents of "competition" have not considered the logical chain of events, which includes refusing admittance to the "least among us", in order to maintain or boost student performance and increase profits.---Tsome
It is not 'the logical change of events' of competition to exclude children from public education.
As I understand 'competition' in this context, the 'competition' is to perform to the benefit of the child.
Not make a profit.
