People come to United States from all over the world to get a better education Although this seems to demonstrate the success of the American education system I believe that considering education as a marketable product for a long time has had a key role in the success of American schools Most capitalist values and systems emerged from the American society America was the first country to create laws enabling privatization and commercialization of education Education has become a highly lucrative industry with lots of monetary resources More money has provided smaller classes developmentally appropriate curriculum and specialized staff for the fortunate ones who could afford it I see lots of similarities in the development of Americas health industry and the education industry Today there are about 40 million Americans with no life insurance who cannot receive decent health care but simultaneously you can find worlds most advanced health care in America In this particular case competitive nature of capitalism is achieved by a rather cruel award and punishment mechanism Education is a public good and the whole society will prosper from better-educated people Public goods should be provided equally to the public The fact that education is becoming a market may result in an inequality in education A market by definition is interested in creating profit rather than the common good of the society It seems to me that providing education to everyone equally in United States will get harder as the market gets more attractive for invertors who are seeking profit My personal knowledge of the American education system is vague because it was acquired by a brief observation rather than personal experience I went to an American school in Turkey My school was instituted as an American missionary school and it was turned into a private school when the laws were changed to obligate all educational institutions to follow the same curriculum Ironically I was against having all classes
