I support school choice and vouchers. I believe that one of the of the most effective ways to fight racial and income inequalities is to have a voucher system. We need to allow parents to have access to the best educational option for their specific child’s needs. Under a voucher system, public schools will still get first shot at enrollment in most family scenarios. As long as they are performing at the level that is needed to keep our children at the highest standards possible, vouchers would go widely unused. Theoretically, only a small portion would be interested in private, charter, parochial, or home school options. I will always back educational freedom that opens the market, levels the playing field, lets competition thrive, and adheres to state budgeting. Thank you to all teachers.
