School Choice

To solve part of the Wake County school overcrowding problem, the school board is considering changing some traditional calendar schools to year-round schools. Every time they try to do this parents complain, but there seems to be an easy solution.

Give parents a choice! Convert some schools to year-round and then give parents the option of attending the year-round or the traditional school in their area. But school board members such as Amy White believe that they know better than the parents what is best for the kids and the families, so they want to mandate who has to attend the new year-round schools. Guaranteed failure.
