The Universal Declaration of Human Rights promises free elementary education and free choice of the type of education. International fora emphasise the first right while neglecting the second. This is unfortunate, since school choice can reduce costs and increase the attractiveness of an educational system. This essay examines arguments for limiting choice of free education, often to schools owned and operated by the state. It finds each of them to be unconvincing.
