Lisa Snell of Reason says that School Choice now has more claim on “winning!” than Charlie Sheen.
In the past few months, an amazing number of new school choice laws have been passed, greatly accelerating an already siginifcant trend:
School choice is growing 6 times faster than growth in assigned schools. In fact, since 1990, growth in assigned schools has only grown at half the pace of enrollment growth overall.
So, where is everybody? Public charter schools, online schools, home schools, private schools via public scholarship….
In short, the shift is on. Time to focus on making sure that we bring down every possible barrier to growth in excellent schools. That means expanding scholarship programs, and complete revisions of state education funding so that money follows students.
Everybody, drink your Tiger Blood.
