BBC correspondent in libertarian thinking shock

At the end of BBC news education correspondent Mike Baker's latest piece:
Amid all the understandable concern about discipline in schools, it is perhaps
worth asking whether the more the state, and the school, takes on the role of
the parent, the more some parents may abdicate their responsibilities?

Where does the balance lie between the school as educator and the school as
agent of social inclusion?

It's good to see MSM debating the proper role of the state.
