Value In Vouchers?

Over at Tech Central Station, Ryan Sager of the New York Post recommends that Democrats embrace vouchers as a values issue. His argument is worth reading, though Eduwonk doesn’t buy it. Accountable choice, which ultimately means charter-like arrangements, is better policy and accomplishes the same political purpose.

However, if Democrats don’t offer some sort of clear position on school choice generally (and not just saying no, clear but wrong) and act aggressively on it, the default position is going to become the urban voucher pilot as the patience of minorities and urban politicians runs out.
