The business around the profit model are different, but the basic pieces are already being used today by billion dollar companies. I imagine I could pay the teachers more than anyone else if I get everything put together right. The only thing really holding me back is that I really know very little about how to teach students. I will need some guidance from some teachers on that part.

    We have a bureaucracy that makes teachers teach to a standardized test which does nothing to promote creativity or critical thinking. Students usually go through the same mundane schedule day in and day out. When they get to school around 7:30am to when they leave at around 3:00pm....it rarely changes. Same with prisons from those times....the same mundane schedule.

    We need to change that because institutionalizing students is wrong. Schools should promote creativity and critical thinking. They should have schedules vary from week to week. Would that put a strain on the administrators? Sure, but we shouldn't worry about them...adapt. We worry about the kids in the schools, not the administrators who can handle themselves.

    Got to get off standardized testing...it is stifling education.
    Good idea, how can we get it done?

    Meh.. there is always naysayers. If you guys desire free education than I will do what I can to provide it while still being able to make a profit. That is not to say the request isn't stupid and childish, but if I feel that I have an idea to pull it off there is no reason to not do it.

    That's my point, your idea has never worked in any other first world nation.

    The model size is wrong and the solution the government created is not workable. You would need to localize the solution towards individuals or smaller areas making it easier to control the cost. This way of doing it would also increase competition naturally.

    What I just said would have nothing to do with the past.
