Harry Messenheimer, PhD recently analyzed issues with education in New Mexico and the fact that the state continues to spend more and more on K-12 education, but results on the respected National Assessment of Educational Progress have failed to keep up with those of children in other states.

In a follow-up to that study, “Elementary Principles of Monopoly: Government-run Schools Get Less with More,” Messenheimer analyzes productivity in education and compares it to private sector productivity. Not surprisingly, Messenheimer discovers that the competitively-driven private sector economy is far more productive than the monopolistic government education sector.
