Parents have the right to educate their children as they see fit. They need to have real options when it comes to where they send their children. There is no better upward mobility tool than school choice.
We have seen what happens when schools are only measured by standardized test scores and attendance. If we allow parents to select the schools their children attend, the schools are held accountable by the people they serve. The money should follow the child and the parents should be able to decide where the child is educated.
Ohio has made some great strides when it comes to increasing school choice, but we need to do more to give all parents and children a chance to make a free choice.
