The School Choice Juggernaut

March 28, 2015 by .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) at 10:46 AM

The US school juggernaut rolls on, as evidenced by this figure. (Update: a special needs voucher bill just passed the Arkansas house 90-0.)

I'm not sure why I keep giving you updates on the tidal wave of legislation south of us, since it doesn't seem to be having any effect whatsoever in Canada. However, I do think it's significant, for two reasons.

1.  The johnny-come-lately states would not be able to pass this legislation if there wasn't already evidence from the forerunner states that the voters want it because it is working.

2.  The more American families that learn about the advantages of school choice, the bigger its constituency and the more compelling school choice becomes to politicians.

Eventually, Canadian politicians will start to grasp that school choice saves taxpayers money and makes parents happy. It's just a matter of time.
