|Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams|
[School choice] opponents seem more concerned with propping up a system than educating children. They cling to the antiquated belief that existing public school systems have the right of first refusal when it comes to educating our children. An innovative and productive public education system can include home schooling, parochial schools, private schools, cyber schools, public charter schools and, yes, traditional public schools -- all of which I support.
"School choice is not an alternative to public education," he says. "It is a vital part of an innovative and productive public education system."
