The Jury Is In on School Choice
On balance, school choice is a win. It makes sense. Consider the expenditures per student in the public system, the smaller expenditures per student in choice schools, and that the public system usually retains a portion of its funding while being freed from the responsibility to educate those students. When that happens, public school teachers shouldn’t lose anything, though fewer adminstrators and staff may be required and the union will enjoy less income. Unless, that is, the management in public school systems prioritizes administration above teachers.
