My short answer is: only where competition in education is illegal would one have to fret about monsters.
The question of how good or bad a school's curriculum is only has real meaning when you can answer the question: Compared to what?
The decision-making, when decentralized, would make this problem far easier to spot and conquer.... not least because it's harder to socialize the cost of bad decisions at a decentralized level. And I mean decentralized in the sense of political power.
On a separate yet-related question i.e. the gender wage-gap, 'the interview' springs to mind...
A very interesting exchange. I assume many if not most RRFers have seen/heard of this interview already, since it's a mainstream UK channel. I get the feeling Channel4 did not really see Peterson coming at all. Otherwise they would never have let it air.
I don't agree with him on everything but he did a great job, here. 4.1 million views and counting, on youtube, too. Ouch!
What I find disturbing is that it appears necessary for one to be a 'Clinical Psychologist' who makes it onto mainstream news - apparently by accident - before these observations can be noticed and taken seriously by more people. At least now many more will be familiar with them.
I use the term 'observations' loosely, though. Most of what he had to say was him correcting or debunking the interviewer's projections.
