School vouchers

school_vouchers1

Education in the U.S. below the 12th grade in the U.S. is virtually public and the results are often poor.  Education above the12th grade in the U.S. is public and private and the best in the world.  If we want better below the 12th, we can privatize a lot of it with vouchers.  Parents would shop for schools instead of moving to different school districts.  Private schools would spring up according to demand for the disabled, the athletic, vocational, college-bound, English-deficient – whatever.  They would hire more para-professionals and aides.  Public schools would have to compete by cutting top-heavy bureaucracies, tenured union employees, etc.  Those that didn’t produce would lose students.  They would lose money but still have the same amount to spend per student.
