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.

We Shouldn't Give Up Battle for Choice in American Schools

As published in The Dallas Morning News, September 11, 2001 Students have returned from their summer break blissfully unaware of the battles being fought on their behalf across the country. The fiercest and most critical of those battles is being fought over the future shape of our public education system. What is the truth about U.S. public education? It isn't a simple story, of course, but it is one where bad news still is the rule rather than the exception.

State and federal policymakers alike are responding to calls from parents, taxpayers, and scholars to improve education by putting an end to the "one-size-fits-all" approach that most states currently use. Different states are taking different approaches to the issue.

Voucher plan changes: Is it politics or progress?;

BY MARILYN BROWN

TAMPA - Florida's voucher program remains alive but is facing changes after school grades improve. America's only statewide school voucher program, once either feared or hoped to encompass hundreds of schools, is changing fast. Because Florida's annual report card flunked no schools this year, Gov. Jeb Bush's voucher program remains stalled at 51 students from two Escambia County schools who are using public money to pay private school tuition.

Over 200 Oregon CSE Activists Lobby for More School Choice at CSE Day in Salem

Salem, OR - More than 200 Oregon CSE activists traveled from across the state to Salem to lobby their legislators in support of more school choice. In particular, they urged policymakers to support revisions to strengthen the state’s charter school law, as well as to support the Oregon School Accountability Enhancement Act, which would give local school districts the flexibility to opt out of the state’s current “one-size-fits-all” accountability system and choose another nationally recognized test.

Parents Need to Lead Children Into Education That Works

I was in a hotel restaurant recently and asked the waitress if she had children. Yes, she said, she was a divorced mother of three. Then I asked her if she was in control of her children's education. She said she was. "Did you pick the schools they go to?" I asked. "Did you approve the curriculum they're learning?" "Heck, no," she said. "I can't even talk to who's teaching them."
