School choice saves money

There's a $600 million budget hole at 23rd & Lincoln, with no guarantee that things will get better next year. Plus, there's a looming statewide vote on the school-employee labor union's irresponsible proposal to divert some $850 million more to education.

It's past time for policy-makers to understand and embrace this simple truth: school choice saves money. To see for yourself, check out this Fiscal Impact Calculator, a spreadsheet tool which can estimate how much school choice can save Oklahoma's policy-makers, thus freeing up money for roads and bridges, corrections, health care, and so on.
