Choice = Renewal

Here's an interesting thought from our neighbors in Kentucky. The Bluegrass Institute looks at the numbers of parents fleeing the Kentucky public school system and asks us to consider Edmonton, Alberta, Canada's solution.

"Naysayers claim offering parents a choice of where to school their children will destroy public education. Instead, Edmonton’s entrepreneurial approach that centers on choice – which has been in effect for more than 30 years – has resulted in the closing of most private and charter schools. Only six private schools remain in Edmonton and several Christian schools have even asked to be included under the public-school system’s wing."
Don't overlook their "Ten Great Reasons Why Kentucky Children Deserve School Choice".
