The Opposition to School Choice

It is difficult to see where the objection to school choice lies. After all, isn’t it common sense that your taxes should pay for your child’s education, regardless of which school they attend? Why should failing schools be supported by your money? Consistently poor performance at a regular job results in termination. Why should the education system be any different?

The Common Sense of School Choice

     The Pennsylvania legislature is currently considering a landmark step forward in education: Senate Bill 1. Senate bill 1 is a bipartisan bill that supports a voucher program for qualified low income students in failing school districts. This bill would allow students who are currently experiencing academic success in the difficult setting of a failing school an opportunity to leave that school in favor of a better one, taking their tax money with them in the form of vouchers.

Support School Choice in Pennsylvania

Over the past ten years, enrollment in PA public schools has declined, while spending and staff have grown by leaps and bounds. According to the Commonwealth Foundation, taxpayers now spend an outrageous $14,420 per pupil each year, while at the same time student performance has stagnated. Test scores have barely changed and PA continues to rank near the bottom of the nation in combined SAT scores.

Rally for School Choice Tomorrow

Come to the Hill for your lunch hour (and a half) tomorrow and support the Put Kids First Coalition in their fight to save the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program.  The group has been tirelessly defending this successful government program (not an oxymoron) with rallies, demonstrations, office visits, and testimony at hearings for months since the scholarships was dealt a death blow in the Omnibus Spending bill earlier this spring.

Save the D.C. School Voucher Program

A bunch of us here at FreedomWorks are heading to a rally for the D.C. Opportunity Scholarships.  It's at 1pm at the Freedom Plaza down the street.  The voucher program was cut out of an omnibus spending bill earlier this spring and was blogged about here. The tragedy and irony surrounding this decision abound - President Obama said that he would make decisions about education reform based on programs that work, the D.C.

School Choice is the freedom that saves kids' futures

While the $410 billion price tag on Congress’ omnibus spending bill gets all the media’s attention, low-income school children in Washington, DC are more concerned about what it may do to their education opportunities.

Public Schools Next at the Bailout Trough

Since I wrote about the Metro asking for a bailout and noted that there were at least some flagging industries that still hadn't asked for a bailout, to no surprise to anyone, that has changed.  Newspapers have indeed started asking for their handout because without newspapers, according to people who have never heard of the internet, citizens would have no idea what was going on.  Michelle Malkin has been watching the ridiculousness unfold over on her blog.
