Rand Paul Calls for Choice To Address School Failures

by Reason.com  |  published on February 27, 2013

The latest state-issued report on Kentucky schools shows that only two of Louisville’s 18 persistently low-achieving schools meet required measures for progress.

Five Jefferson County schools have shown “zero” progress over the past three years.

This is a terrible, shameful, immediate crisis. We have thousands of young students enrolled in publicly funded schools where they are not being taught effectively or prepared for adult life.

Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday calls this situation “academic genocide.” I agree. …

I believe equality in education will only be achieved when we allow school choice for all: rich or poor, white, brown or black. Let the taxes paid for education follow every student to the school of his or her family’s choice.
