Now this is radical

Senator McCain proposes giving money to consumers and letting them choose.
Andrew Coulson, director of Cato's Center for Educational Freedom, comments: "Republican presidential candidate John McCain told the NAACP that after decades of broken promises by the nation's public school systems it is time to give parents an easy choice of public and private schools. He is right, so long as he doesn't propose a private school choice program at the national level. ... It is far better and safer for presidential candidates to tout the merits of school choice and encourage their state level counterparts to put these programs into place. In that way, the varying experiences of the states -- the so-called 'laboratory of federalism' -- can help to identify and eliminate problems in their implementation."
