Public Schools: A Tyrannical Intellectual Stagnation?

I just read this and found it worth sharing. French schools are a living-proof of Machen's statement. Why are French Private schools better than the heavily funded Public schools? Read one:
"The only way in which a state-controlled school can be kept even relatively healthy is through the absolutely free possibility of competition by private schools and church schools; if it once becomes monopolistic, it is the most effective engine of tyranny and intellectual stagnation that has yet been devised."
J. Gresham Machen (from Desiring God blog)
