Capitol Comment 292 - Evidence Shows School Choice Works

Schools ought to be more accountable for students’ educational achievement. To that end, President Bush’s education plan proposes to make accountability enforceable: If a school fails to make progress in educating disadvantaged students for three years, parents of these students could use federal Title I funds to move their children to an alternative public or private school.

Florida CSE Activists Storm the State House to Demand School Choice

Nearly 250 of Florida Citizens for a Sound Economy’s activists lobbied their state representatives to demand support for H.B. 303 and S.B. 504. This legislation applies to parents of students attending schools at over 120 percent capacity. Parents would be allowed to take part of the tax dollars spent on their child and use it at another public or private school. Activists also urged support for separate legislation to allow a tax credit for businesses that contribute to private scholarships, thereby making school choice available to even more parents.

About 463,000 students in grades 3-11 took the Stanford 9, with the scores released Thursday being used for the fifth straight year to measure the academic performance of their schools and school systems.

School Choice: Questions and Answers

Will school choice raise taxes? No. Studies have found that most private schools cost far less per pupil than public schools. Will school choice mean a return to segregated schools? No. Currently, children attending public schools in their home district often are attending segregated schools. Today's private schools are often less segregated than public schools, especially in the inner cities. Do vouchers help children get a better education?

Determine Donde Estudian sus hijos (Giving Parents A Voice) Today, as the nation celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday it is appropriate to look to ways to improve educational opportunities to those most in need. For parents with children trapped in failing schools, it is time to give them a voice and a choice. Reverend Floyd Flake, a former Democratic Member of Congress, strongly supports school choice. He and his wife run their own private school in New York City. He believes that if the public schools don’t work, parents should have a choice.
