Forbes cites Oklahoma special-needs article

In his Forbes “Fact and Comment” section, Steve Forbes (pictured here at OCPA) makes mention of a recent OCPA article:

Mother Knows Best

When Oklahoma legislators were debating the special needs scholarship bill in May, one state representative actually suggested that school choice was dangerous because parents “may think they know what’s best––but do they?” I promptly blogged on the matter, concluding with “a very important question for Rep. [Neil] Brannon: If the parents of House District 3 aren’t capable of choosing a good school for their children, how can they be trusted to choose a competent official to represent them in the Oklahoma House of Representatives?”
