School Choice Remains Unproven, System Proven Not To Work Remains In Place

John Stossel, the crusader for school choice, reports from South Carolina about the Governors attempt to give all parents the same options he had for his children, school choice.

When newly elected South Carolina Governor arrived in Columbia SC he had to decide where he would send his kids to school. The school district that he lived in was not all that great but since he was the governor he could send his kids out of district to a better school.

He decided that was not fair and elected to send his kids to private school. He then introduced legislature to give all parents the same option of school choice that he was offered. Unfortunately the bill was defeated and the failing system remained intact.
