'Governed absurdly'

Peter Mehas is justified to complain that "California's system of education governance is absurd" (commentary March 28).

But can Mr. Mehas -- or anyone -- point to any enterprise run as a socialist venture that is not governed absurdly? The only route to rational management of education is to separate schooling from government.

Fresnans might be delighted to find that a movement for that purpose is headquartered here in Fresno. See www.SchoolandState.org.
