The More the Merrier
Blogs are no fun if all the contributors echo each other. To prevent that from happening here, the Show-Me Institute hired both me and Dave Stokes. I must disagree with Dave’s post arguing that Missouri has too many school districts. As Caroline Hoxby has shown, more districts mean more competition, which leads to higher student achievement per dollar spent. When families move to an area, they usually look at the different available school districts before buying a house. They have more options in areas where there are many different districts.
