I am late to the discussion...but why is choice a bad thing. Let parents decide. If the public scho works for them...great. If private school is better...ok. If they want to go charter and have one close by..go for it. Want to homeschool your kids..not problem. No one way works for everyone. Never has never will. Give each family a voucher for teach student. Voucher can only be used on education. Whether public private or whatever....here it is. Let the parent decide. Am I missing why this would be bad?
