Why Choice Improves Public Education
What are the benefits of school choice?


When the money follows the student, parents are able to decide what school best fits their and their child's needs. This could be as simple as better location, going to school with friends, or even results for the school itself and its amenities. The role of public schools could change to fit whatever needs of the community that public charter schools and private schools can't meet or don't meet best, and become especially formulated to educate problem students that struggle in virtually any classroom.
