The founder of the X-Prize (well known around these parts due to events such as the space ventures side of things) now wants to launch a prize for people with good ideas on how to sort out education. (H/T, Instapundit). I can suggest two quick ideas:
Give the prize immediately to Professor James Tooley.
Or, Give it to me, as I have this brilliant idea – just get the state out of education, full stop.
