Who SHOULD control children's education? And what if those who should, don't?

We are having a debate on this topic at this link: http://www.ted.com/conversations/10094/education_who_should_have_con.html
when a member suggested that I am really asking TWO questions, so here they are! I am really looking to discover what the general ideas are, so there's no wrong or right answers. Thanks for your participation!

    Mar 20 2012: Thanks all for contributions and please continue to do so, I just wanted to add some ideas to enlarge the conversation. What happens if the child's parents refuse to send him/her to school when he/she reaches age six? what if they chose a different path for their child? What if governments decide not to support anymore the present system of education? what if everything was left in the hands of the child's family?
