Gary shared this link with me about governors implementing reforms that will increase and incentivize school choice. This is good stuff - education is a positive externality and merits public investment. What is disappointing, of course, is that many of these same governors are reducing investments in public education and the same time that they're bolstering private education through vouchers and subsidies (details here and here). I'm all for school choice, but I find this disappointing. It seems awfully perverse to decry public education but then insist that public funds be directed towards a private institution of a parents' choosing.
