How to improve your education system? (The Flemish Beerdrinker)

1) you can raise taxes to built and provide more public schools;
2) or you can let the market do it’s work by removing obstacles to opening new private schools. More supply of schools and more competition then will lead to lower prices and more choice. On top of that parents with low income can be provided with school vouchers or tax credits. Schools in this case are competitive and performance-based and parents and students have real choices in their education.

Here is a defence of way two.
