Katherine Mangu-Ward, the managing editor of Reason magazine, spoke at Reason Weekend 2013 about one of the most pressing topics facing parents today: what is the best way to educate the next generation?

For decades, the solution has seemingly been to throw money at the issue.  It hasn't worked.

But Mangu-Ward, the mother of a two-year-old and editor of a magazine that argues for "liberty and individual choice in all areas of human activity," has a new idea.

"Will computers replace teachers?" she asked. "Dear god I hope so."

For about 21 minutes, Mangu-Ward made the case that drastically increasing the amount of learning children do on computers will not only help them learn faster and more efficiently -- it will also help take care of the budget issue plaguing America's education system.

Check out her entire argument and let us know what you think, below:
