We should abolish the public education system and allow schools to operate as autonomous units competing for students. Students will receive government funds in the form of vouchers which they can then “spend” at the school of their choice. This will force schools to compete for students by offering better and more varied educational services. As in private industry, only the schools that provide customer satisfaction will survive. Since schools that cannot attract students will close, we will see an overall improvement in the quality of education. The argument above rests on which of the following unsupported assumptions?

(A) Maximizing student and parent satisfaction also maximizes student learning.
(B) In order to attract students, all schools will eventually have to offer essentially the same curriculum.
(C) Giving students direct financial aid encourages them to study harder.
(D) Schools should provide only educational services and not additional co-curricular or extra-curricular activities.
(E) All education, both public and private, should be funded either directly or indirectly by government expenditures.

Here we need to find link between "customer satisfaction" ---"increase in quality of education"...we have conclusion that there will be increase in overall quality of education.
only A does that .
