#31: The Perfect Education System Doesn’t Exist

In a previous episode, I discussed the concept of perfect social systems, making the point that they don’t exist. In this episode, I take that idea further and apply the principles related to social systems generally to education systems specifically. Toward the end of the episode, I also briefly discuss school vouchers.
