School choice: A weapon in the war on poverty

"What is needed to liberate families from the stain of poverty is individual educational empowerment in the form of universal school choice," Phillip W. Smith writes in the Muskogee Phoenix:
School choice would be the first effective shot fired in the war on poverty. Health, education, crime and economics would all radically change in our poorest neighborhoods if we were to advance true school choice. We need a government dedicated not to "programs" but rather to individual empowerment.
