Education is infrastructure. It's like roads and bridges. When managed at the bigger level (national rather than local) it fosters bottom up development, a levelling of the playing field allowing talent to flourish. Needless to say, when standards to reflect reality, the outcomes are more positive.

The right wing argument for parental control of educational content is hubris at best, negligence at worst. Expertise trumps parental prejudice.
