School Choice is a Lie. It Does Not Mean More Options. It Means Fewer.

When I taught at a Title I elementary school from 2001 to 2006, we were labelled a “failing school.” Under NCLB students were given a choice to attend a “good” school. Only three students (out of nearly 700) made the leap, and two came right back to their neighborhood school. School choice is an artificial name to open the way for profiteering off the backs of students and their families.
