Celebrate School Choice Week
In many cities, there are tremendous private schools, but those schools are always at a disadvantage because parents are forced to pay nearly the entire cost of their child's education out of their own pocket. What makes charter schools so great is that it's a way for parents to get that great elite feeling that only the best private schools provide, while doing so at taxpayer expense. This is why people the Koch Brothers and their organization Americans for Prosperity love School Choice Week so much.
Whether you have a student in a charter student or maybe one that's been counseled out because they were too expensive to teach, a discipline problem, or just got low test scores, let's all raise a glass to charter schools this school choice week. Their right to be selective is under constant attack and it's important to use this week to remind ourselves to stay vigilant.
