So Friedman is suggesting that teachers should be required to take vows of poverty like nuns, and live collectively in cloistered communities? That's a great solution. I do not believe that the free and unfettered market is the solution. Sorry, I do not worship at that altar. As for vouchers, I would support them with the understanding that a voucher be accepted as payment in full for tuition at any school that is willing to accept it.
I work at a school where tuition is $25,000+, but it is mostly paid by corporations. I am well compensated, and have my housing paid for, plus other nice benefits. I would take a huge cut to work in public schools again, which I have no desire to do. Less regulation...absolutely. Hold parents accountable for their children...absolutely. But I take exception to Friedman's attack on teachers, that they are not to be trusted as professionals. Why doesn't he say the same thing about doctors or lawyers?
Just out of curiosity, how do you justify working at Comcast, a near monopoly in many cities and communities, with special licenses granted by government giving them that authority. I would think that out of your strong libertarian principles you would quit a job that benefits from government largesse.
