School Choice Application Numbers Announced

by Jerry Bader

The big news as this is reported is that a majority of applicants are already in private schools. I didn't have a problem with those students being eligible I am disappointed that public school students won't take priority over students already in private schools. That needs to be fixed immediately. Truthfully; my preference would have been to limit this to public students but I understand the argument for allowing private school students in. But the priority loophole gives a lot of ammo to choice opponents and needs to be dealt with.
