Empower America Applauds Supreme Court Ruling In Historic School Choice Case

Today the United States Supreme Court made history. It ruled on the most important education case since Brown v. Board of Education. In its ruling, the right of children in Cleveland to attend schools that offer a quality education, and the right of parents elsewhere to have a choice in the education of their children, were upheld.

Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic — For Teachers

As the Supreme Court struggles with the constitutionality of school choice, the case for competition simply becomes stronger. Like any monopoly, the public school system behaves in ways that harm consumers. Unfortunately, in this case that means parents and their children, who are forced to attend schools where they have little input or control. Street addresses, not quality assessments, are the determining factor for most families when it comes to education.

Let Freedom Ring

Much will be written and said over the coming days about the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in the Cleveland school voucher case, Zelman v. Simmons-Harris. There will be important commentary about the legal issues surrounding the case, and plenty of political analysis. Education analysts will talk of school performance, budgets, and spending levels. All of it will be interesting and important, but may miss the fundamental principle and issue at stake – FREEDOM.

Spring Break

Congress has recessed for Easter and Passover and most school children across America have a break in classes to celebrate the holidays. The biggest Supreme Court decision relating to education since Brown vs. Board of Education is expected within a few months. The federal government has just expanded its role and funding for K-12 education in America. At the same time, most states and local governments are at least looking to freeze spending after years of big increases because state and local budgets are coming up short.

Why Cleveland needs school choice

The Washington Times Copyright 2002 Saturday, February 23, 2002 LETTERS Why Cleveland needs school choice The fate of the Cleveland school district's voucher program is now in the hands of the Supreme Court, who must decide whether the inclusion of religious schools violates the First Amendment. With religious schools providing the only alternative for most Cleveland students, the importance of the court's decision for their well-being cannot be underestimated.

 I would like to commend Robert Holland's outstanding column, "Hearts, minds, and vouchers," in your Feb. 19 Commentary section. But I would like to expand on his depiction of Cleveland schools.

End the Public School Monopoly: America Needs Competition in Education

This week, as we celebrate President’s Day, all across the country school kids are learning the history of great American leaders like George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Unfortunately, while we celebrate our common history, not all American kids have access to the same quality education.
