Who should decide where a child goes to school? The government? A bureaucrat?
Most Americans believe that a child's parents should have that power. But unfortunately, in this country, not all parents do. Only those parents with financial means can really decide where they send their kids to school. Many underprivileged families are forced to send their kids to consistently failing public schools. In fact, many of these families live in the nation’s capital. Washington D.C. is home to some of our country’s most troubled public schools.
