A Good Pro-Choice Movement

George Will writes that there is hope on the horizon for families whose socioeconomic circumstances force their children to attend substandard schools:

The public school lobby, which apparently has little confidence in its product, lives in fear of competition -- the fear that if parents' choices are expanded, there will be a flight from public schools. But the tide is turning:

Will summarizes some initiatives by traditionally liberal politicians who have become advocates of school choice. Educational choice is no longer an entirely Republican cause, as those on both sides of the political divide realize that it is neither compassionate nor wise to require students to attend moribund institutions where they will have little chance of reaching their potential.
