Two Comments on Coy, Bryan Caplan | EconLog | Library of Economics and Liberty
My question for Coy: If deleting 80% of the perceived social rewards of education makes you no more willing to cut public support for public education, what would?  What if we deleted 90% of education's perceived social rewards?  95%  99%?  I know it sounds nice to say, "If it helps one person, it's worth it," but that's crazy.  No one spends their own money so casually - nor should they.  Furthermore, you can easily use some of the budgetary savings to help "strivers" in more cost-effective ways.  So why not?

Beach Critiques The Case Against Education, Bryan Caplan | EconLog | Library of Economics and Liberty
Finally, you need to look at other countries for empirical examples.  Is there a county that represents some/all of your ideal?  Specifically, you need to research South Korea and read Seth's book Education Fever.  South Korea has had a largely privatized education market, but you will find that it is the most over-credentialed country on the planet, with not only massive degree inflation that is out of step with the labor market, but the process of schooling (both public and private) is a heavy burden on kids from K-college.  I lived and taught in Korea for a year, did some research, and was horrified by what I saw.  South Korea is perhaps an extreme outlier, but it proves that lack of state sponsored public schooling will not necessarily reduce signaling/credentalism because of the deeper, institutional importance of education and schooling for South Korean society.

Letter: Peterborough spending too much
First, I would like to express my appreciation for the dedication and commitment of our town police officers and our fire and rescue crew members. I certainly want them to have what they need to operate at the highest efficiency, but without overburdening our town residents and without making it almost impossible for the average person/family to live here. Six million dollars for a fire station, $3 million for a town garage and $8 million for the library – for which I’ve never seen a line outside because there is no room inside – is just way too much. Maybe this is why school enrollment is down.
