On November 9, 2011 PBS News Hour aired “Indiana Crafts Dropout Remedy Through Choice of Schools.” Special correspondent John Tulenko reports from Indiana, where a voucher program allows families to choose religious schools, charter schools and public schools in neighboring districts for their children as part of an effort to provide more options when graduation rates are low.
We would just like to add one comment of our own. By opening up choice to all students in a state and not just selected groups you create a large enough “market” to allow schools to open and serve “specialized” areas of need, such as those with learning disabilities, at risk of dropping out or failing, etc.
