School choice for autistic children

"Improved education for autistic children is the goal of a bill being considered in the Oklahoma Legislature," the Associated Press reported yesterday. "The bill filed by Senator Mary Easley is intended to allow more children with this developmental disorder to be included in regular classrooms and to give more support and training to teachers to make this happen."

Here's a better idea: Use vouchers or tax credits to help children with autism and other special needs, as Ohio and Utah are doing.
