For the latest on what’s happening regarding School Choice up at the capital, here is some testimony from Representative Matt Huffman from Lima, Ohio given on February 16th, 2011. There are plans to expand the voucher program which is an encouraging sign for those of us that are pushing for 100% eligibility in the state.
Here are some testimonies from parents speaking for the merit of the School Choice program.
This program will go a long way to solving many of the education funding issues we have in the State of Ohio by introducing competition to the mix. I’ll post more as I get it. There’s a long way to go, but this is a big first step.
Now, for those who are on the fence with this issue have a look at these students and what they put on Twitter during the Wisconsin protests. We need to pull our kids back into reason. We need to bring competition to education so radical educators will lose their voice in the free market system. It’s of utmost importance.
If we just let this whole system go without serious reforms it will just get worse.
