Dave Roland Quoted on Charter Schools
The Show-Me Institute’s Dave Roland was recently quoted in an article about charter schools in the Springfield News-Leader. He communicates some benefits:
“Part of the reason (traditional public) schools have gotten into the situation they are in — having quality problems — is they effectively have a captive audience. They don’t have to earn students,” said Dave Roland of the Show-Me Institute, a think tank that promotes free-market solutions to public policy.
“Wealthy parents already have the option of moving into the best school districts, or the best zoning within districts,” he said. “The idea of school choice is we make sure low-income parents have the same range of options.”
