Barack Obama on school choice

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

Obama said he has been a strong supporter of charter schools "as a way to foster competition in the public school system."

He pronounced himself a skeptic of private school vouchers ... but indicated he might be open to supporting voucher programs if studies show they work. "If there was any argument for vouchers, it was 'Let's see if the experiment works,'" Obama said. "And if it does, whatever my preconception, you do what's best for kids."
