“This week is National School Choice Week, and there’s no better way to show that it really is about the kids than to support school choice,” Dave Trabert, president of the Kansas Policy Institute, argued in a commentary. Trabert noted that Florida has seen significant test score increases since it initiated several education reforms, including greater school choice. Last year Oklahoma approved a scholarship program that allows special-needs kids to attend private schools. “If Kansans are really serious about putting kids first,” Trabert said, “we should follow the proven examples of forward-thinking states such as Oklahoma and Florida, and ensure that parents are empowered to decide what’s best for their children.”
