Education: who should have control over children's education?

When it comes to education there are different appoaches available. Just to name two your parents could be the ones who decide for you, or it could be the government, or even a combination of these two: the government sets a minimun standard and it's up to the parents to choose how to fill the gap. My question to you is: are children too young to make sound decisions about their future? If so, who should be in charge of developing their skills, knowledge and potential?
Thanks for your contributions

  • Mar 20 2012: I dont think that children are too young to make sound decision but I want to make sure that they
    need some guidelines from the parents and people around them. They surely have their own ego and
    knows whts right and wrong. But it is the lack of self-control that leads them to make inappropriate decision i think.
    and since the government cant mind all the children and guide them individually, parents should be in charge of developing
    their skills and potential.
    well, government could engage in by giving the families subsidy
