The Decline Of Choice, The Rise Of Vouchers

Over at Eduwonk, guestblogger Dianne Piche posts about how the NCLB choice requirement has been woefully under-implemented: "There are too few voices out there arguing to keep and strengthen NCLB's transfer provisions, especially given all the resistance, whining and waiver-seeking going on. " She also points out (in a subsequent post this AM) that even while public school choice has fallen off the radar for many folks, once-taboo ideas like vouchers are making inroads in some Democratic circles. It's an interesting notion, and I think that the two trends may be somewhat related: the "failure" of NCLB transfers creates interest and demand in other choice based options.
