This article argues that "Republicans in states like Texas complain that public schools are failing, then starve them under the guise of 'choice.'" The argument: "The important thing to understand about school vouchers is that they're a redistribution of wealth to people with enough money to already be sending their children to private schools." You don't need privaye schools to support choice; it can be supported by a public system, and as such, provide genuine opportunity for people living in poorer districts. Via Tim Stahmer.
