Betsy DeVos

It sounds like she is an advocate with giving parents of students in failing public schools options. That’s good.

In this post I explained how school choice already exists for middle and upper income folks and the schools that serve those markets — both private and public — are good quality because of that choice.

Betsy DeVos, and folks like her, would like for poor people to have more school choice, too, rather than trapping poor kids in bad schools. What’s wrong with that?

Also, in this post, I explain what the biggest hurdle is to improving education. It’s probably not what you think.
