Who knows what’s best for your kids?

Drew Carey has been producing some videos over at Reason.tv.  Here is one of his videos on the benefits of charter schools and how the unions and some school committee members try to fight them.

Remember last year about this time.  I made a motion for the Committee to send a letter of support for a piece of legislation that would lift the moratorium on charters.  Bill Day (whose wife and son both work at Chariho) convinced the Committee that we should not support charter schools because those schools don’t have the same mandates and requirements as do public schools.  I guess Mr. Day believes that he knows what is best for your kids.   In light of the recently announced test scores, I would ask if you are happy with this arrangement? 

Why do we continue to let them take our money and tell us how to spend it on our own kids?
