Helping School Choice Work

Michael Q. McShane

National Affairs | 2014

“It seems unlikely that Republicans are going to abandon their commitment to private school choice, and rightly so. The moral and conceptual cases are strong. But if the actual outcomes from school-choice programs fail to live up to the rhetoric or the theory, the disappointment risks derailing the pursuit of greater educational opportunities for millions of American children. Rather than declaring that choice is the surest way to break the cycle of poverty, policymakers serious about making school choice work should instead set about creating the conditions necessary for a thriving marketplace to develop.”
