We should vigorously promote educational choice and the voucher system to instill competition in our failing schools. By doing so, we will be giving lower- and middle-class families the same mobility as the wealthy by providing them the means to choose the best schools for their children, rather than imprisoning many of them in inferior public schools that are all too often urban war zones.
The teachers’ unions, the education bureaucrats, and many Democratic politicians believe they should have the prerogative to tell middle-class Americans where their children should attend school. How often have you heard discussions of “giving parents the right” to choose their school? Good grief, [they should not] grant (or deny) parents that right. As Bill Bennett says in response to this idiocy, “Let my people go.”
