One of the commentators on the blog, Ed Glaesner, suggested it would take some centuries for laissez faire capitalism to spread high quality education in Africa (Sweden the benchmark). http://creativecapitalism.typepad.com/creative_capitalism/2008/06/the-case-for-cr.html

In fact private efforts are spreading basic education in China, India and parts of Africa as we speak. As basic education spreads, high quality education will not be far behind.

Elsewhere on the E G West site there is the story of independent education in Kenya that was thriving until over 60 independent schools were closed during the state of emergency in 1952.

PS Sweden may be doing well but how is the US public school system performing these days?
