This paper, which offers a positive assessment of the role of markets in education, is a 'reply' to an earlier contribution to the Journal (41, 4)in which Stewart Ranson argues that markets are intrinsically flawed as a vehicle for improving educational opportunities. The 'reply', among other things, argues that Ranson fails to address the shortcomings of education under democratic control and ignores the educational benefits of authentic markets.
