Hall Pass for LA Schools -- Still a Fail

Instead of assessing the motives and management of charter schools, parents throughout Los Angeles need to be able to choose where they send their students.

Competition is the best engine for promoting reform, not laying out sections of the monstrous LA Unified School District to outside operators, who are pressed and harassed by demands from the top, despite a reprieve from the workplace and organization rules that stifle public schools.

Competition through a voucher system would force school districts to adapt to the needs and interests of local stakeholders, the majority of which are composed of parents demanding excellence with their chronic intervention and micromanagement.

Without choice, all these petty-ante reforms do not add up to much.
