School Choice is very important in reviving our cities

Editors note: School choice is the most important step in increasing the quality of education we as a society provide. I the tax dollars spent per student followed the student to whichever school they get accepted to, students will not go to schools that are seen as lacking. This will force schools to improve since they will all be in competition for students. Children will no longer be forced into their neighborhood school. Competition will force improvement. Chicago  carnage must be cleaned up, but how is the 6 million dollar question. One thing I am sure of is education is a big part of the solution. Education will enable children to grow and eventually get jobs.
