One Scenario of School Choice
What does School Choice look like? Here is one scenario. Parent: I do not approve of the curriculum materials that are being used in my child’s classroom. They are not progressing academically and they are coming home and sharing some ideas that are in opposition to what our family believes. Principal: I appreciate your concern but we believe in teaching Culturally Responsive Material and ensuring “equitable outcomes” for all students, so we will continue to teach using that material. Parent: Thank you for your honesty. I know of a private school that is committed to teaching rigorous academics and equipping my child with the necessary skills to compete in the workforce someday. I will be using my voucher and choice to enroll my child there. Have a good day. Principal: Maybe we should reconsider what we are teaching. Expand school choice. Competition is a good thing.
