School Choice Promotes Accountability

In response to the efforts of the Flint Hills Center to advance educational achievement, the an op-ed appeared in the Shawnee Dispatch. It takes nearly every argument you can make against competition and choice in education and rather than lay them out, simply names them.

You might wish to read that report, and then a partial rebuttal, here (PDF).

The simple point is this: public schools as we know them depend on politics for accountability. A superior method is to hold schools accountable by sending the money to the school of the parent’s choice. There’s nothing like a paycheck to make people pay attention.
