"I’m sure many will regard these ideas as simply ivory tower policy fantasy and out of step with the real world."

It sounds pretty prosaic and incrementalist to me. To make people appreciate that we can send Ted Cruz back up there to propose a solution. How does "close all these ministries down, because that's what Jesus would want" sound in comparison?

But what if post-secondary education is more about signalling than about human investment? I find it bothersome that a lot of what we call "education" really looks an awful lot like signalling. If that's so, on the post-secondary education front, a more "efficient" government ministry would only exacerbate sheepskin rents and externalities. Perhaps we should figure out the signs of things before we start inventing policy.
