School choice is a civil rights issue
Citing Martin Luther King’s Letter from a Birmingham Jail, Casey Lartigue Jr. of the Cato Institute calls for parents and activists to stage peaceful protests to demand school choice.
Do parents and school-choice advocates expect the status quo to yield power without a fight? Do they expect those with power not to resort to various delaying tactics? Do they expect not to be derided as extremists who hate the public schools?
Educators have a vested interest in preserving the system, not in empowering parents, writes Lartigue.
