What You Should Know About School Choice

Are you skeptical of school choice programs? Do words like private schools, charter schools, vouchers, and tax credits make you uneasy? If so, Prof. Angela Dills argues that there are four things that you should know about school choice before dismissing it as a viable improvement to our education system:

  1. School choice doesn’t require parents to bear the full cost of educating their child.
  2. School choice lowers the cost of schooling.
  3. School choice raises the quality of schooling.
  4. Low income and minority students are more likely to benefit from school choice programs.
Dills argues that the American education system is failing our children. We have thrown money at the problem for years with little or no effect. School choice, when it has been tried, has lowered the cost of schooling while maintaining, or even improving, the quality of education.

Why do some states (like Nebraska) have in their State Constitution that there will not be Charter schools?  What's the fear?

would this allow school to chose what the students learn and wouldn't this lead to schools removing subject that they don't agree with (science) or similar affects.
