    An intriguing idea! Glad to hear of it; we need many more. Historically, monopolies without competition have not done society much good; schools being no exception. Gov. Bobby Jindal is providing Louisiana a real voucher program; parents may pick their schoool, public or private, and the state will pay the (substantial) voucher amount. Schools will have to compete for students. Mr. Thiel is offering another competitor for the schools; good for him! If any U.S. institution needs competition, those stultified, politicized pachyderms need it….
