For more choice in higher ed

In yesterday's Edmond Sun I argued for more school choice in higher education (we already have some school choice with Pell grants, OTEG grants, etc.).

Tomorrow Governor Brad Henry and Treasurer Scott Meacham are going to announce a research project in which hundreds of Oklahomans receive seed money for their child's college savings. Let's hope this money can be used at private colleges and universities as well as public ones.

UPDATE: Economist Mickey Hepner, a professor at the University of Central Oklahoma, blogs in favor of higher-ed choice.
