A Choice School Board – Lately, the really cool stuff always seems to be happening in Colorado. And today, I have serious school board envy.
In case you have not been following it, the Douglas County School Board voted unanimously to offer a pilot voucher program for students in the district.
Douglas County schools are already considered excellent, and the board members simply said that thay are having crowding issues in their popular schools and this can help alleviate that while saving the district funds. They also said they know competition will spur them to be even better, so giving parents this choice seems like the only choice.
