Greg Forster, senior fellow at the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice, responds at Pajamas Media to Sol Stern’s article, School Choice Isn’t Enough, in the City Journal:
Vouchers are more successful than ever. And no wonder, because the research consistently shows that they improve education both for kids who use them and in public schools, they reduce racial segregation, they improve tolerance and other civic values, they improve services for the disabled, and have other beneficial effects. Only the teachers’ unions and other special interests lose. That’s a deal legislators are going to keep taking for years to come.
Forster also links to Jay Greene’s response in the City Journal, part of a larger debate “ignited” by Stern’s article.
