A Case For School Vouchers in Nebraska


Create a marketplace

The solution to the impasse between Omaha Public Schools and the coalition of suburban school districts is to dissolve all school districts and declare each school an independent entity. Then issue vouchers to students and let them and their parents pick the schools of their choice.

There would be another round of consolidation, just as there was with the Baby Bell telephone companies. But it would be market-driven instead of being dictated by political boundaries.

The beneficiaries would be students and parents who would be free to pick schools offering the best educational value with no restrictions due to place of residence.

That's real school choice.
