More on School Choice

Art Carden and I have another op-ed on school choice, this time in the Memphis Commercial Appeal. Our previous one was in The Tennessean. This time we are responding to comments by a school superintendent, who dismissed charters schools as unnecessary, because Memphis schools are already very good. If this were the case, however, then Memphis schools would have nothing to fear from charter schools (or vouchers or any other choice-based reform).
