School Inc. Episode 3: Forces and Choices – Full Video

in Coincidence by



Ten years after Chile reformed its education system, Sweden followed suit, and so Sweden is Andrew Coulson’s first stop in episode three of School, Inc. All private schools in Sweden are now fully tax supported, and parents can choose between these so-called “free” schools and the local public schools.

The global journey continues, visiting highly successful private schools in Sweden, London and India, where the resistance to education as a business has lessened. Coulson is joined by the administrators of these schools to examine the secrets of their success, learning that some of India’s highly successful private schools serve eager poor students and parents at little more than a dollar a week. School, Inc. comes full circle to conclude in the English countryside where the Industrial Revolution began. Then as now, Coulson suggests, education was perhaps the only field in which successful entrepreneurship was not celebrated. He concludes “What if we allowed all education entrepreneurs to put their own money on the line in an effort to better serve us, gaining or losing just as entrepreneurs do in other fields? And what if we made sure that everyone had access to that wide-open marketplace? Would we then see excellence scale-up in education?

  1. there are a lot of ways on which this ideas about freedom and capitalism can be presented,like through short videos,interviews,speeches,books,maybe some protests or taking some actions,but i think there is definitely no better way than through documentaries like this 3,or the ones on johan norberg and hernando de soto on this channel.and also through movies like the 3 parts atlas shrugged.unfortunately,this channel is not very popular,although it deserves millions of views

  2. Makes me wanna cry because bureaucrats dont care. That's understandable but what's ironic is that they always blame entrepreneurs for being greedy and ripping people off when they're the ones that do it.

  3. The best quoute" If you go to the market and want free fruit, it's rotten, if you want fresh you have to pay for it"

  4. While I am watching this video it has been published for 51 days and only has been viewed 1562 times. That is frustrating given how wonderful this series is.

  5. Interesting to be so caught off guard a bit by the role religion plays in this third episode. It then becomes pretty clear that weight would be carried by this population on this topic because they are the folks that predominantly have children and are philogenerative. It's funny how everyone instinctually wants to teach and raise and shape children because they are obviously the ones to carry the future. Parents are the first teachers and when you get a conflict between parents and teachers regarding world view the philogenerative group will simply out number the barren one and inherit the earth by default. Barren groups must make converts to make up for the lack of fresh numbers. Interesting dynamics for this open society.

  6. Thank you Mr. Coulson. I regret your passing as you had an innovative and focused mind. You did well with your life, for what my opinion is worth. If there is an afterlife I would hope to see you in it. In the unlikely event I become wealthy I would like to endow a scholarship or get a school named after you. Hopefully I'll meet you someday. Hopefully not too soon.
