Despite unprecedented levels of public school funding, far too many students in America never enjoy the benefits of a high-quality education. Now is the time for a market-based approach to revitalizing U.S. education – one that fosters innovation and encourages competition via school choice, education savings accounts, and charter schools. But as with any sector of the economy that moves from a public monopoly to market-led solutions, smart stabilization and support from other institutions are essential for making a decentralized school system effective. The children of the United States deserve a system that makes wiser use of technology, one that offers a marketplace of education options – one that will help them succeed in tomorrow’s economy.
