ON-Lion Letter
Economist Herbert Stein famously said that something that can't go on forever, won't.  For decades, America has been putting ever-growing amounts of money into its K-12 education system -- with worse and worse results.  A lower-education bubble has formed, and it is finally beginning to deflate.  Parents are losing faith in public schools, new alternatives are emerging, and change is on the way.

In his new Encounter Broadside, The K-12 Implosion, Glenn Harlan Reynolds provides a succinct description of what is wrong with lower education and where the solutions are likely to appear.  Change is coming to public education, and parents, educators, and the public should be prepared to face the future of learning.

Reynolds is the Beauchamp Brogan Distinguished Professor of Law at The University of Tennessee.
