One last point before ending this round of voucher-related commentary. School choice advocates claim student achievement will increase when parents get some control over where their kids are educated. I believe it – for the same reason that students often do better in private schools. The reason, however, is not necessarily the school. The basic fact is that kids are going to do better when they have parents who are concerned and involved in their education, whether that’s the local public school or not. Parents who pay for private school and parents involved in school choice programs have a major influence on their kids which often translates into better school work. The big question in school choice is how do we persuade the remaining parents to get that interested in their kid’s education?
